Did you eat fast food during your pregnancy?

I was told during my pregnancies that I wasn't suppose to have a lot of caffeine or eat fast food unless I totally had no other choice. But, I drank caffeine on occasions and ate fast food if it was going to be convient with my one year old during my second pregnancy.

What about you?

  • Yeah I ate fast food sometimes and I had caffeine daily. I'm a bad parent, I guess, by some people's standards. But, my baby came out healthy, happy, etc.

  • Totally! I was never told to avoid fast food... I mean I did to an extent because of the fat...

  • Oh dear god I'm awful. I'm preggy now and I do make sure i get in my fruits/veggies/dairy (dairy isn't a problem... I LOOOOVE MILK!) but I have absolutely gone overboard on the oreos, little debbie's, and I enjoy the occasional fast food. I know it's not the best but think of generations before us - nothing tragic happened because you had a big mac. Enjoy and endulge in the cravings! I believe (and my mom does too, who is a nurse) that cravings are your body's way of telling you you're lacking something that is IN the food you're craving. So go for it, mama!!!
    Oh and caffeine.... I switched to 1/2 caff or decaf. No prob. :)

  • No~ I wouldn't do it as a non-pregnant person, either.

  • I loved the chicken nuggets from McDonald's. So I'm guilty. I ate them occasionally, and even had someone go get me some right after our son was born, lol. I didn't drink soda's though, lol.

  • In moderation I ate fast food.
    I was never restricted from any foods, and was told I could eat 16 oz's of caffine a day. Never did though.
