I'm 5 weeks pregnant and love diet pepsi and rootbeer. Is it ok to have a little pop during pregnancy? do you guys drink it? do i need to stop?

I drink some pop, I have about 2-3 gla__ses a week...Are you Canadian?

 

Kim - October 6

haha, yeah Lisa I am Canadian...I guess you can tell from 'pop' and not 'soda'?

 

Lisa - October 6

Sure can! I'm Canadian too and my American friends pick on me all the time when ever I say it!!

Soda without caffine is fine, I drink alot of water and sometimes get sick of it so I will have a siera mist or a rootbeer once in awhile. Just make sure you dont have too much sugar lol :)

p.s. I say "pop" too but I grew up in the south of Florida, then moved to Wisconsin and everyone calls it soda and made fun of me for callin it pop.. LOL

 

Kim - October 6

I have Americans in my family and i don't lke the word soda...lol...no offence to anyone but i'm a B.C girl. Where are you from?

 

Lisa - October 6

The other coast.. Nova Scotia. It's funny, just those little words that make us unique! Like toque... Haha.

lol....can always tell us Canadians. 'Pop' is fine during pregnancy in moderation, I would just recommend that you dont drink diet pop, it contains aspartame. You are better off drinking the real stuff. Aspartame has been researched and they tend to think it is linked to neurological disorders like Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, etc. Just be careful and dont consume too much of the empty calories. And by the way Kim...where in BC are u from? I am also from BC, but living in Alberta at the moment.

I'm from Ohio and I say "pop" but I think soda sounds better! I think a little bit is okay- you don't want to overdue the sugar or the artificial stuff, though!

I am living in Fort McMurray right now, but originally from 100 Mile House.

 

Lisa - October 7

Fort McMurray...oil and gas country; and newfies! My girlfriend from Nfld. just moved there for work.

 

Kim - October 7

Cora - October 7

Lisa - October 7

Me? I'm not from BC, I'm from Nova Scotia; Halifax. The furthest I've been into BC is Radium to the hotsprings. I want to get there and take a couple weeks to actually see BC.
