  • Flavored seltzer is probably your best option, but if you are looking to mainly elimate the caffiene which is what they advise against in pregnancy and less sugar you could try a natural soda, find them in most abundance in a health food store.

  • My fave is grapefruit juice and club soda. Bubbly, not loaded with sugar, and very refreshing in the summer.

  • You got a few alternatives. A soda on occasion isn't going to harm your baby. If you do drink one though, don't drink diet. The aspartame sweetener can be harmful in early pregnancy.
