Lucozade


Hi I'm currently 16 weeks 5 days pregnant. I'm really craving lucozade! Is it ok to drink in pregnancy? If so, then how much is enough in a day? If it's dangerous to drink in pregnancy then obviously I will resist the craving
Thank you

I don't drink it because it contains caffeine and I can't have any, but you are allowed some, I'm not sure if it has other ingredients which are bad though... Sorry not much help!!! But now I'm craving it too... Dammit!

Ive been drinking it all the way through, I asked my midwife as I went throuygh a stage of feeling really tired and obviously, we cant have energy drinks. She told me she was happy for me to have a bottle of lucosade a day if I wanted one.

Ive not had one per day but I will have a bottle every couple of days

I love lucozade but I avoided it since being pregnant because it's an energy drink. Anyway a few weeks ago I got a bug and ever since being little I've always sipped lucozade (along side water) whenever I get a bug. So I did - gave me awful heartburn lol I don't think it matters one bottle a day, just be wary of anything else during the day with energy or caffeine stuff in it.

Lucozade has less caffeine than say Coke for example - but it does have a lot of sugar. I love the stuff too, haven't had more than one bottle in a day though

One bottle of lucozade will not harm you. Just limit anything else with caffiene in it like tea, coffee.

I have had it about three or four times since getting pregnant, have never heard anywhere that you can't.

Its given as an option to drink instead of the glucose stuff before GTT so it is allowed, I just wouldn't overdo it, a little here and there won't hurt x x x
