I am 6 wks pg with my 3rd child. During my last 2 pregnancys I had really bad cravings for coca cola. During my 1st pg I didnt realise it was a craving and drank it all the time. I could easily get through 2 to 3 ltrs a day. During my second pregnancy I stopped drinking coke 6 wks before the birth but ended up drinking the same amount of Lemonade (2 to 3 ltrs a day). This time I am trying to avoid ALL fizzy drinks. Has anyone else had this problem /craving. And is caffiene bad for the baby?

what about caffeine free coke?

PiccadillyCircus · 12/05/2005 15:44

I am pregnant. And I drink coke. The fully caffenated sort . I read that you'd need to drink 8 cans a day for it to affect the baby and as I don't drink tea or coffee and don't eat a vast amount of chocolate that my one or two cans a day are OK.

Sometimes it is the urge for fizzyness that I have and Fizzy water will do. But coke is nicer .

Thanks Minnie1 I am going to keep off it. I dont seem to be able to just have 1 or 2 cans of coke, once I start drinking it I can't stop!
