  • I am a caffeineaholic, I drink soda all the tim, I am on my 3rd pregnanvy and so far everything with all of my children we have had no issues or side effects or anything.

    I had a dr. tell me the caffeine will cause colic in babies, but it hasn't happend for me yet!

  • yes, i couldnt give up my cola but found coke and pepsi make caffeine free versions that taste exactly the same. but my pregnancies weren't completely caffeine free , but both my kids came out perfectly fine. and i didnt get gestational diabetes or any other complication.

  • i had almost 6-8 cans of coke a day w/both my pregnancies, both my kids are fine and healthy. no complications caused by it (i had high blood pressure w/my daughter but it was the environment we were in at the time after katrina)

  • I was told soda is perfectly fine & just to watch my caffeine intake, so I still drink a 2 liter a day (they said keep it between 200-300mg of caffeine & my 2 liter is 197mg woo-hoo). I have, however, cut out coffee.
