I drink lots i must admit, i have always drank a lot of fizzy pop and cola is my fave but it has to be the "proper" one, i crave the feeling of fizz in my mouth, i was worried i might make my baby smaller but he is measuring 2 weeks ahead lol so im sure im not harming him.
I have stopped smoking so i think i have stopped a worse thing than some fizzy pop
I used to drink a LOT of Diet Coke before i got pregnant, but since being pregnant i have gone right off it. It's only this week that i've craved fizzy again, and have started drinking Dr Pepper. Only like 2 glasses a day, which i've been told is fine. I heard somewhere that the "limit" is 5 cans of soda per day, so go on and treat yourself to that Coke with lemon x
I have just taken this off the nhs website, will post the link in a mo:-
Limit the amount of caffeine you drink every day, but you don't need to stop it completely. If you have more than 300 mg a day, then you raise your chances of having a low birth weight baby or even miscarriage of your pregnancy.
300mg of caffeine is roughly the same as:
three mugs of instant coffee
four cups of instant coffee
three cups of brewed coffee
six cups of tea
eight cans of cola
four cans of energy drinks
