  • Kick back, relax, alot of stuff people consume and it is past expiration date. People shop at scratch and dents for great food deals, and most is expired or about to be expired soon. Where the heck did you get this soda. If it still had fizz there wasn't a hole in the can and I'd say you are ok since there is only water, flavoring and sugar in it. Relax, and congrats on the baby!

  • Diet soda is bad for babies. Drink water.

  • Hun, diet soda is bad for everyone. Here - read up on aspartame.

  • You shouldn't drink that junk while pregnant. I don't think the expiration date makes it any worse.
