I am a pregnant caffeine drinker. I’ll pause while you take moment and gasp!!!!
I’ve read the books, and I know that caffeine is not highly recommended on a pregnancy diet, but neither is a box of Twinkies. I do drink caffeine, but I believe myself to be a responsible drinker. I crave Coke all day everyday. Before pregnancy, Dr. Pepper was my soda of choice but apparently baby Thomas likes Coke, so I allow myself one Coke a day. I don’t always drink one everyday, but I would say I have maybe 4 or 5 a week. And when I’m at home, I drink caffeine free Coke (which tastes just as good). So even when I do drink soda, I don’t drink that much. But every time I order myself a delicious glass of Coca-Cola Classic, Tommy says to me one of two things…”Be sure to spit out the caffeine” or ”If that boy comes out with 12 arms, I’m going to let him pop you in the head with every one of them.”. He always has a great way of putting things into perspective for me. You gotta love em’.
