  • I always avoided caffeine while I was pregnant because it caused me to have pain in my breasts. I would have shooting pains that felt like they came through my breast and out my nipple. Also, too much caffeine can result in a jumpy baby when they are born.

  • I think if you learn what Coke (or most soda's) do in your body, and the lasting effect, you'd probably not drink it ever again. Pregnant or not.

  • Yep, it is okay. Just like the other girls said dont over do it. Reminder that chocolate has caffiene though as well so I would avoid soda if you also are eating chocolate and visa versa. Also, no diet coke (or any diet sodas). You can drink more caffiene free stuff like sprite than you can coke but I wouldnt reccomend it just because soda is so bad for your body in high amts.

  • That would be fine. I usually drink 2 Dr. Peppers a week. Never been told not too.

  • I craved coke! I drank a few cans a day. I also drank a cup of coffee every morning. My baby was fine, not jittery or anything like that.

  • I drink Coke daily....not a ton though. As long as you keep it in moderation, a few a day, the baby will be fine!

  • there is nothing good about coke ingredients. i would stop drinking it-if you have to have one than make it a treat but personally I cut all sodas out, especially diet sodas. Who really knows if is safe for babies down the road. I am not saying I was perfect but I tried to eat healthier whern I was PG and it was easy for me to cut out soda.

  • I drink coffee every day, and a soda maybe every other day. I only drink sweet tea when we go out to eat. My baby is perfectly healthy =]
