I can't even tell if this is a joke or not but it's important to stay hydrated while pregnant. Soda dehydrates you and the excess of caffeine is not good for the baby. If you need something more flavorful than water then at least drink juice or decaf tea. You are also putting yourself at a higher risk for gestational diabetes so if you care about your own and your babies well being you will cut out the soda and replace it with water...

Ask your doctor if ginger ale is safe for u to drink. I am not sure but it gives u that soda favor and it has no caffine. Also u can do favor waters some have that soda favor other than that. You gonna have to develop the will power and say no its unhealthy for my baby and I. Good luck to u I know its just as bad as a smoking and drinking habit

I'm not a fan of soda but preg changed that. Soda craving is real. Try drinking 1 pint of soda once/week and eat fruit when you really feel like drinking it. Fruit helps me stop my cravings (esp pears, grapes, melons).

You're only meant to allow yourself less than 200mg of caffeine a day while you are pregnant, all that sugar and caffeine can be damaging to your baby. Try juice and flavored waters, but the soda intake needs to severely be reduced.

This is ridiculous. Self control. That's how you stop drinking so much soda. Seriously. Soda is full of sugar, fat , and preservatives. Soda dehydrates you. If you're pregnant you should mainly be drinking water. Your pee should be clear or close to clear.
