  • I would think that you are okay. You have to remember that during pregnancy your taste buds are a little different too. If it is something you are really concerned about try calling your doctors office.

  • Im pretty sure its your tastebuds. Pregnancy screws them up. If you didn't see anything on the can you probably have nothing to worry about. If you tried another it would probably taste nasty as well.

  • I am sure you are just fine. Sometimes the can itself can make the pop taste funny. And it is not a myth that prego women taste things differently so it could just be you! If you still have it then pour the rest of it into a glass and make sure you don't see anything in it. But I wouldn't worry about.
