  • eh...i ate tons of sweets while i was preggo (as i do when im not preggo) and both my kids were fine...i dont believe there is any toxic level of sugar...lol...just be reasonable about it and dont eat so many sweets that you are not getting enough proper nutrition from healthy foods too! of course if you are diabetic or develop gestational diabetes then its a whole different story and you should consult your doctor.

  • You should maintain a healthy diet... Just like if you weren't pregnant. Consuming too much sugar can cause excessive weight gain and such.. Just like a woman that is not pregnant.
