When you were pregnant/are pregnant?

When you were pregnant of if you are, do you drink diet soda? I sometimes I just have to have one and I feel so guilty about it!

Re: When you were pregnant/are pregnant?

  • I still drink an occasional soda or coffee. I work night shift so sometimes I just need one to stay awake. I may get flamed for this but i also ate sushi the other day. I looked into it a lot before I did. But I don't really freak out about a lot of stuff while pg.

  • I don't drink diet soda, I like the real stuff :) And yes, while I was pregnant I would drink it. I would usually drink only 1 glass a day, but I didn't feel too guilty about it. I also didn't drink it every day, but if I wanted it, I had it.

  • Yes, I usually have a can in the afternoon. I also have a cup of coffee in the morning. I'm not a good rule follower though. I also have a couple glasses of wine each week and eat over easy eggs with runny yolks.

  • I don't drink the diet kind, but I drink the "real" kind all the time. :)  I do try to avoid anything with artificial sweetner, but I doubt it's really all that bad.  I wouldn't feel too guilty over it!

  • A friend told me if I'm going to drink it I should have regular so I'm not drinking artificial sweeteners but I don't like regular, that why I feel so guilty like the artificial crap is going to do harm of some sort!

  • I don't drink coffee...never have, or diet, but I will still drink a soda like 4 times a week when pregnant.

  • No, I did not and that was tough because I love diet soda. I also cut all caffinee. If we have another I am not sure I would cut out all caffinee, but I think I still would diet soda.

  • I cut out soda until 3rd tri then I had a diet coke every few days.

  • First pregnancy I stayed away from soda and only drank maybe a cup of decaf coffee every other week in third tri.  I was nuts though.  I was like ahh caffeine!  Don't eat chocolate either!  lol

    Second pregnancy I was very lax and still drank regular coke and decaf coffee like once a week.  Ate chocolate everyday =D


  • I don't drink much soda...maybe about once a week? And it's always diet. I drink decaf coffee a few times a week. I was "hooked" on decaf a few years ago (HAD to have a cup a day) and cut it out of my system. I just like having something warm to drink in the mornings and I never liked tea.

  • I don't drink diet soda normally, but I believe "everything in moderation". I was pretty strict with stuff w/ my 1st pg, but was more lax w/ my 2nd. I had cold cuts, sushi & hot dogs, etc, for example, all in moderation. Both babies are perfectly healthy =)

  • Yup!! I had GD both times and drank diet pop and crystal light. I avoided caffeine for the first tri both times, then drank coffee too! I did cut back the pop when my heartburn got bad with #2!
