So I know it's not advised to drnk soda and being a rather large sodaholic I realize this is going to be quite a challenge but I resisted the urge this morning and picked up a vitamin water instead. Suprisingly I liked it and wound up buying 10 of them but seriously I'm like in love. Bye bye Dr. Pepper and hello Mr. Vitamin. Also have a question for the BTDT moms is tea or decaf coffee okay to drink? I'm attempting to get off my 14 year long coffee habit (yeah you read that right) and need a new vice for my mornings.
I am a first time mom, but according to the american pregnancy association's site, decaf teas and coffees still contain a small amount of caffeine. If you only have one or two, I'm sure its fine. I think you would have to drink several for the caffeine intake to be significant. It also says to stay away from herbal teas and stick to black tea. Here are the links: What's the Real Scoop on Caffeine During Pregnancy : American Pregnancy Association
I'm the same as you, as far as being a popaholic, but I have found that sprite zero or diet sprite works wonders, no caffeine, and no carbs (I'm insulin resistent) and it calms my nausea down quite well, and I actually feel like I'm drinking a pop. I think your ok for decaf, even tho there is caffeine in it, I know it's nowhere near what regular has.
