 I know it's bad to drink it but I tend to crave pepsi when i get stressed out.  My baby is a few days over due an im bored an nervous so i crave pepsi like everyday.  I used to drink alot of coffee but stopped when I got pregnant.  Does anyone else drink soda while prego??  I guess I just feel a little guilty cuz i know im not supposed to.

I do every now and again. Coffee makes me sick, and I'm a caffeine addict so I do a pepsi instead of my usual non-preggo energy drink.

No, it's not good for the baby to have a lot of caffeine while pregnant, so I didn't. I also never really drank a lot of caffeine anyway, its not good for your body either.

In moderation it's perfectly fine. I limit myself to one can a day.

I'd have one of the little cans that are 8oz instead of 12oz a day of Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. My doc said it was fine in moderation.

What's the difference between caffeine in coffee or soda? I mean, no caffeiene would be best, no one is perfect though. I have what I want. If I want soda, I'll have one. I don't drink it often anyway. I'm having some root beer tonight =)

I still drink a cup of coffee every morning as well, though I did switch to 1/2 caf. I think stopping and getting headaches would be worse for me than having a 1/2 cup worth of caffeine.

I let my self have 1 can a day! its what i crave next to hot dogs and steak LOL. My midwife said as long as i keep it under 200 mg (i think thats right) of caffine im fine. But she warned NOT TO DRINK ANY DIET! which is fine i think diet taste terrible!
