  • Pop isnt the best while pregnant only because of some chemicals they use in making of cola.. But if you are to drink some I agree with the post above me "no diet".. It has aspertame which isnt good for developing baby.

  • Oh no one time won't hurt you or the baby. It's just that artificial sweeteners in general are best avoided. My high risk OB told me if you drink soda don't drink diet. I trust him 150% so I was cool with it.

  • I drank soda threw out most of my 3 pregnancies and my boys are perfectly healthy. And it was diet on top of that. Unless you have some kind of health problem you'll be just fine as long as your not attaching an iv to your arm with it.

  • My doc's told me to limit my caffeine while pregnant. I did stay away from it while pregnant with my daughter, but I drank maybe two or three glasses of tea a week while pregnant with my son. My sister drank dr. pepper all of the time while pregnant with her youngest because that was the only thing she could keep down and her baby turned out fine.
