try drinkin pop wit little or no caffeine...i rely on sprite...but ive heard that regular coke is good too....
Its not really the pop that is bad it is more about the caffeine in the pop..they say to limit the amount of caffeine that you take in...I would chose a diet and caffeine free pop if you drink any at all...I'm glad you found something to settle your stomach I can't drink anything with carbanation to it because it just turned my stomach and makes me sick every time...
No avoid diet during pregnancy! the chemicals used for the sugar replacement are worse than the high fructose.
The reality of soda pop during pregnancy is that you have to follow the rule of thumb: less than 300mg of caffeine per day while pregnant. What most people don't realize is that, for your average 12oz coke, that's nearly 9 sodas! who drinks that many cokes anyway?
So a few sodas a day to calm your stomach is perfectly safe and not a bad idea because vomiting is going to rob your body of valuable nutrients and calories. Bear in mind that coffee, unlike soda, contains on AVERAGE 100-300mg of caffeine PER CUP....so it's not something that can be indulged in as lightly. And some sodas, like mountain dew, have a MUCH higher caffeine content so you're limited to more like 4-5 per day....
but with regular coke, I've always found that even drinking it like I do when not pregnant, I don't come anywhere NEAR my daily allowance...usually I don't even drink more than 100mg a day, without changing my non-pregnant/pregnant soda habits.
so...drink the soda, if it helps! and avoid diet; it's full of awful chemicals. but like leeann said sprite or even ginger ale are wonderful, caffeine-free alternatives because the clear sodas are easier for your stomach to digest.
well I love pop but it seems that my baby hates it as I get really bad cramps whenever i begin to drink it so I have only been drinking water
Personally I never drink soda because it is so very bad for you, absolutely delicous though :) if a little sprite is settling your stomach then there is nothing wrong a little indulgence. It's important to go with what you are most comfortable with. One can get so wrapped up with all the do's and don't during pregnancy. Don't stress yourself out mama!
I drink sooo much Diet Coke!
I have with all of my pregnancies! Nothing bad will happen from drinking it! LOL
POP is my addiction! No joke
Oh also... The amount of aspertame(sp) that is in Diet pop will not hurt your baby! lol
My dietition was telling me that u would have to consume barrells full before it effected anything! haha!!
Just make sure you get enough H2O don't forget ur body needs the water
