What do you do that you know you really shouldn't while pregnant?

Hey!
I was just wondering if any to-be mommies out there still do things they know they really should. (Or if you had the baby, what was it you still did?)

With me, it's soda. I drink it like it's water. I'm not saying it's the only thing I drink, I drink A LOT of milk! And a lot of juice, but soda is something I can't seem to stop with. It's hard!

  • just junk food in general. i had aversions to most of my favorite foods like bananas, bell peppers, onions, hummus, etc etc. so i ate less healthy than i should have.

  • with my daughter i did really good on doing what i should while pregnant.. with my son OMG I COULD NOT STOP WITH THE SODA so i know what ur talkin about. i loved soda sooo much while pregnant with him. i drank other things too but a lot of soda..

    U should try to cut down on it, and drink more water. what i had to do was tell myself i HAVE to drink a certin amout of water a day.. put that much water in the fridge and drink it through out the day.

  • I cannot RESIST chocolate sometimes.

    I never even TOUCHED chocolate or cake before I got pregnant and now it's freaking addictive.

    yum and so does my son. lol. even though i hated it while i was pregnant.

  • Soda. I only had 1...maybe two a day. But I got so sick of sprite! I had to get something with caffeine. Where i was working, they bought soda for employees to drink. I hate tap water and I didnt want coffee, so I either had the soda or a hot chocolate. On days when I remembered my water bottle, i got water our of those things where you switch out the jugs (cant remembered what they're called).
