|soda is never good for us. But I drink it all the time---diet which is supposedly worse--
shrimp is bad cuz they are bottom feeders--full of toxins and stuff. A person should only eat clams, crab, lobster, shrimp in moderation while pregnant.
But.....We are not suppose to eat or drink a lot of things that we consume evry day. There are sites that explain what we are suppose to avoid.
lmao I thought I was a doing good...The whole beginning of my pregnancy I never touched a pop and I dont drink coffee...And then around christmas I caved so now I try and drink it only once in a while. But i've eaten sooooo much seafood!! Me and my mom had a thing where we went to red lobster like twice a month...And I can eat .A .L.O.T of crab...Ahahahaha like well over a pound and half at time (sush, what can I say; i'm pregnant!!) I love shrimp! Heehehe, I do eat all this cooked though. Plus i've found that in my pregnant state I love hotdogs (couldnt stand them before) so i've eaten a few of those. But until recently I never knew you shouldn't eat deli meats and stuff (which I did eat lots and lots and lots of over christmas) so I dunno what to think...Lol i've apparently eaten a lot of things that you should not and I never got sick...Lol either I am lucky or people worry to much.
yeah my first 9 pregnancy's I knew nothing about the seafood either,(ate it like crazy--me and my 1st hubby--(seafood restaurants all the time--or mexican food) and soda has always been a problem for me. I dont know if it is worse for a baby or not but I had a dr tell me it is not good for .M.E let alone the baby. At the time I wasnt preg I asked what about diet--she says that is even worse. I dont know what I would do without them. But the coffee---i can only drink like 1/2 of a cup in the morning and it starts making me nauseas. So then I have to eat--it goes away.
I didnt know about the deli meats---
yes, they all have caffeine free now---so that is an idea--but I drink cuz I like how it tastes, caffeine free tastes funny. I do like caffeine free, diet coke from the fountain, when they have it I drink it.
the diet sodas are really bad for you and taste funny because of the aspartame in them which is a artificial sweetner used in replacement of sugar, but it's been known to cause cancer, and plus it tastes gross! It's also used in gum. I haven't eaten gum since the very beginning of my pregnancy because of the aspartame but i've been on the look out for a brand or type of gum that doesn't use it...So far nothing. It's crazy. I hate diet soda for the way it tastes so I never drink that. But yes its very bad for you. I'd rather drink 5 cans of regular soda a day then one diet can.
|you know what is really gross and I swear has it in it...Flavored water!! It tastes just like it! But I can't seem to find it on the labels...I swear it does though, i've tried basically every brand and they all have the nasty aspratame taste! Ick! I am with you, I think I am going to be starting to boycott lots of things.|
|samantham, I went through the same thing as you. I rarely drank soda before I got pregnant, and in the beginning of my pregnancy. About halfway through my pregnancy I really craved soda. First I limited myself to a can a day, or a can every other day. At work it was hard because we have fountain machines, and I really liked that soda. So then I tried drinking all caffeine free soda, which by the way they do have caffeine free mountain dew!!! Then lately i've just been drinking soda when I feel it (no more than 3 cans a day for sure) i'm 39 weeks tomorrow. So I should probably lay off the caffeine too now. I've heard the same, the baby gets addicted to it and crys because they want it. I hope it's not true, but who knows. Because I have really grown to like mountain dew as well! Good luck.|
