  • it wont hurt your baby. i just strongly suggest caffeine free sodas, gingerales, orange, grape. they are caffeine free! its almost worst for you while pregnant becaus eyou have a higher risk of gestational diabetes. Im an avid soda drinker (horrible i know) and i just dont drink as much while pregnant and when i do i opt for the caffeine free!! GL

  • You can drink a soda or 2. It won't hurt the baby at all. =)

  • Soda won't hurt your baby, but it is just empty calories. That is why it's suggested to cut down on them. Same as any junk food.
    I wouldn't drink one of the diet sodas, but a regular one maybe once a week isn't going to make a huge difference. Drinking one everyday is too much, in my opinion.

  • 1 or 2 cokes a day or coffee. drink sprite. I am a water drinker and for some reason I have been craving cokes while preg. I hardly ever drank them... so I def limit those. Its prob as the saying goes... you want something you cant have. ;)

  • I drank Diet Dr. Pepper while I was pregnant. My doctor said that 1 is okay a day.

  • Soda is ok to drink as long as you limit how much you drink. You may also want to get caffiene free soda.

  • avoid it as much as you can but it's ok to give in every once in a while. i've been having a few a week. almost one a day. but i did get rid of all diets with aspartame!
