coke & pregnancy

oh coke.. (droolingzzzz)

im asking myself, how bad is coke for pregnancy?

eh.. coke is never good, whether pregnant or not. esp when we consume too much of it. that I know.

yet, still terpikir, how bad is bad... (the coke lah).

so, i googled.

i read through forums of mothers with pregnancy experience, read through articles.

Coke contains caffeine, amongst other things like the co2 and loads of sugar.

so, this caffeine is one of the ingredients that we got to watch out. it was said that we can/should only consume up to 300mg caffeine per day (max). So check out the ingredients at the can or bottle of coke that we are about to drink.

it was said, just a lil' bit intake of coke bcz u r craving wont harm the baby esp if u've passed the 1st trimester. (this was my guideline that i set for myself as well). just a sip or two, not too much. I'll feel guilty.

A lot of mothers said, they've consumed coke during pregnancy and was fine. I dont know, thats their experience.

As mothers/mother-to-be, of course we'd try our best to give the best nutrient to the little one inside.

Moderation is the key. Too much of anything is not good for us.

Bottomline, be responsible. Its your baby, its your body, its your decision.

btw, mountain dew & pepsi contains more caffeine than coke, so, dont avoid coke but goes for those two. no point. (telling myself).

I try to avoid coke as much as I can unless really2 meleleh2 air liur nak jgk tu, then i took a biiiiiittttt only.

salam sue,
aku minum je coke hampir tiap hari!
tapi minum cola radix, kurang manis dan kurang gas!
redza tak bagi tapi teringin aje tiap kali buka fridge...
buat mcm suen, tambah air kosong!
lagipun tak elok minum sejuk, kaki cepat cramp bile da tri-semester...

shu said...

yea... coke could be sgt tempting kan. esp time2 yg agak kurang elok minum. hubby aku pun tak kasi. but.. droolings.. lately dah kurang tho.

oo minum sejuk2 senang cramp yer.. hait2. noted. tq
