What's worse during pregnancy, a beer or a red bull?

i'm totally going ANON for this. I really want to know. This is ONE can of either and on a very RARE occasion and PAST the second trimester.

  • Red bulls have taurine and other stuff in them and i know my moms doctor said she could have ONE drink while pregnant. I've never heard about redbull though. That sucks because i LOVE redbull and can't wait til i deliver my baby so i can have them again...

  • ANON- did they say why it's only half a beer? a glass of wine and a beer should be the same alcohol content, besides the fact that wine is 13 percent and beer is 5-6, it should even out.

  • Red Bull. Red Bull is full of chemicals that are in the drink for the sole purpose of temporarily changing the way your body works, and the caffeine content is astronomical.

  • I think both would be bad and wouldn't do either. If I had to go with what's worse, I'd probably vote for the Red Bull as well. But I'd never drink a beer while pregnant. It's just not worth it, IMO.

  • If you really have to, drink a non-alcoholic beer. Sharps or the Becks NA are both pretty good. I would think redbull would be alot worse for you because of the taurine.
