  • I think soda is not recommended because of the caffeine. I drank caffeine free soda my whole pregnancy...and did have the occasional regular Coke or Pepsi just because clear pop gets old fast. Its fine. Just don't drink a lot of it.

  • I drank coke throughout my pregnancy - after the 1st trimester ( i would have drank it then too but I couldn't stand anything with any sweet taste!). I think they just worry about caffeine. But the studys out now say you can have something like 200mg of the stuff with no problem. But don't quote that number I could be totally wrong! :) Talk to your doctor about it - that's the best advice!

  • The only reason I don't drink it during this pregnancy is because the carbonation makes me feel all bloated and sick.

  • i only drank milk, water and juice sometimes. I had miscarried twice before and wanted to be as healthy as probably wouldnt have made a difference but

  • I drank soda all throughout both of my pregnancies. The first I did the caffeine route..........this last one I did caffeine free. But you have to be careful of the sugar as well as the caffeine. They say, one cup of coffee is ok during pregnancy, so about the equivalent for soda.
