Is carbonated/sparkling water ok to drink while pregnant? Usually I know what I should/shouldnt drink but because it kinda has that diet taste to it and I know you're not supposed to drink anything diet during pregnancy I wasnt sure.
Of course carbonated water is fine!! The only possible issue with diet drinks is the sweetener in them, it depends on whether you believe they can cause birth defects or not, the evidence is mixed and fairly poor to be honest. I don't think the odd can here and there would be enough to cause a problem.
Aspartame is also present in a lot of cordials or squashes too so be sure to check the label that includes the ones with sugars I have found it's generally the high juice ones that don't and 7-up seems ok too.
