has any one else drank diet sodas during pregnancy and your baby turned out ok?

I drink maybe 1 or two diet cokes a day. Somtimes caffeine free and sometimes not. Do you think this will harm my baby

  • You'll be fine. Try to scale it back to 1. Water should be the thing you drink the most.

  • I drank regular soda, juice, some coffee, milk, and water while pregnant. I cut back from 6-7 sodas a day to 1-3 a day. And on the days I had 3, I didn't have coffee. She turned out fine, just a genetic problem that I couldn't have prevented with any changes during my pregnancy (I know this, I asked, several times).

  • I drank non-diet sodas a lot when I was pregnant and she was fine, just keep limiting them like you have been, and make sure you drink plenty of water as well, especially in this heat.

  • Try to go to just one. I drank soda and energy drinks (occasionally), ate cold cut and tuna sandwiches, moved heavy furniture... I didnt like being restricted on what I did. I have a healthy baby!
