    Hi,

    Quick question, is diet pepsi/coke okay to drink?
    I've read many mixed answers... Very confusing.
    It dawned on me earlier because me and my OH have KFC for dinner, with a bottle of pepsi diet included.

    Thanks in advanced :)

    P.s I'm about 6/7 weeks if that's relevant.

    I think its fine hun in moderation, it contains caffeine so you should limit your daily intake....plus it doesn't help with any trapped wind ;-)

    Thanks. I don't drink coffee or tea, so hopefully one or two classes should be okay :)

    Actually I think all fizzy drinks and oasis etc are dangerous as they contain aspartame, it's responsible for behavioural problems in kids. :)

    Aspartame also can cause headaches and migraine, I was told to stay well clear of all drinks with aspartame in when I was having seizures and migraines when I was younger. Its probably worse for your health than sugar

    I think its just best to avoid all fizzy drinks to be honest. Young children don't guzzle down pop!

    I drank fizzy pop all the way through my pregnancy with AJ and no signs of behavioural problems in him. I was never told about this though then

    My midwife has said not to drink flavoured water as it's got aspartame in it too so bottles water is the best option. :)

    So only drink plain water then? I don't like tea or coffee so I drink peach volvic like its going out of fashion.
    Don't think I could just drink plain water all day xx

    I haven't heard that coke is bad.
    I have gone off tea completely, and don't drink coke every day, maybe once a week.
    But I drink lucozade sport, like a bottle of it every 2 days, its the only thing that stops me getting dizzy/weak spells.

    To be honest, I'm more of the mindset that behavioral problems don't start in the womb, they start much after that.
    If they were to do with what u ate/drank during pregnancy, Jo Frost would be out of a job!

    i used to deink a small bottle of pepsi max a day but my mid wife told me not to because of the caffine in it ! - the list of things we can and cannot havejust keeps getting longer pretty soon it will be easier to give a list of things we can have as it will be shorter ! x

    There was a thread like this when I was in tri 1 and it caused a massive debate. The one thing I remember though is that aspartame is in a lot of things, not just fizzy drinks, so if you really want to avoid it completely, you may need to look it up.

    I drank caffeine free d coke at the beginning, but in tri 3, had a thing for dr pepper :roll:

    Hope you girlies are doing well.xx
