Medical experts caution pregnant women to limit caffeine intake to 200 mg per day to avoid lower birth weights and risk of miscarriage.
Coffee & Health also advises all people to take moderate amounts of caffeine to avoid unpleasant side effects:
As with many elements of our daily diet, over-consumption may in some people lead to unwanted side effects. Most people consume a level of food or drink that they are comfortable with and therefore would not experience such effects. However, those who do not self-moderate their intakes of caffeine, may experience feelings of anxiety, hyper-activity, nervousness and sleep disturbance.
Factors like age, body type, your build, genes, if you eat food with coffee, medication and tobacco can all affect how long caffeine stays in your system.
You can learn more about this in “How long does it take for caffeine to kick in.”
