Is 1/2 a can of Mt. Dew a day bad? Before I got pregnant I was drinking 4-5 a day..I know..I know....and than was down to about 3, but I would slip up. Now I have horrible headaches where I cant open or close my mouth if I dont get a little. Should I try sipping coffee or is my baby can (or half a full can a day) of Mt. Dew really bad, and if so how do I get away from it withouth it killing me!

you are supposed to NOT exceed 400mg caffeine a day. But generally it's a good idea to keep below 200mg a day. Mt. Dew only has like 60mg. go ahead drink up

I wouldn't be worried about just caffeine though...isn't there an awful lot of sugar in Mt. Dew? You also have to worry about gestational diabetes. There are a lot of ingredients in soda that scare me period so I may be a little paranoid. I would ask my doctor. Good luck!

The research I have done shows a little in moderation is ok. However, when I started Adkins (before I was pregnant) I went off soda cold turkey. The first three days I felt like I was on detox or something. BAD headache. But after day 4 I felt great. Like you I was a big soda drinker (at least one/two for breakfast). When I found out I was pregnant last week I went cold turkey again because diet is bad bec of the cancer causing agents and regular is full of sugar. If you can survive the first 3-4 days, I think you'll feel great that you quit drinking soda and turn to water. Good luck.
