Cravings

I am not what I would consider a Diet Coke addict (although I'm sure Derrick will try and argue that), but lately all I have wanted is a Diet Coke with Lime. A nice, icy cold can. Alas, for the sake of my unborn child I have sworn off caffeine for the time being. (I'm sure subsequent children will not be so privileged.)

But you better believe I'll be downing a can immediately after delivery. Probably before the placenta even makes its appearance. I'll be sucking it down before the baby's sucking on me!

Funny you're addicted to it--so am I! It's the yummiest thing ever. Like Coke and Sprite together. Mmmmmm....so cool and crisp...Okay, I'm headed to the fridge. I'll crack one open in your honor!

(Kudos to you for swearing off for your baby--I did too and it's best.)

I quit my DC addiction when I was pregnant with Erin...until about 2/3 of the way through. I was going through some personal things and got on the "hard" stuff again. I drank while nursing too....she is now three and swipes my "so so" whenever she gets a chance. I've created a DC monster, though she told me the other night that she likes "diet pepper" a lot too!

Karen...thanks for your advice. I wasn't able to move Miles this week to his crib, but I know that when i do I won't clutter his bed with extra "stuff" to suffocate him with.
I love reading pregnancy posts, so you have to keep them coming. I hope I'm not one of those friends that just writes about her kid, but I know I am and that's ok! You'll see that you just want to share with people what your little girl is doing...but I know you will still write hilarious things that don't have to do with baby...you just are too funny. I tried to not drink caffeine, it was too hard to give up the DP...so keep up the good work! My mom bought me a Hooter Hider (way too expensive but I suck at sewing) and I love it...yours is adorable. You look so good too, that baby will be here before you know it!

I know how you feel, drink it while pregnant though, my babies were always wide awake if I had caffeine! It is a hard dilemma, since you need a good pick me up once the babe is born and you are so tired, but then they just stay awake...so my advice is just enjoy a few now!

Yeah I had soda throughout my entire pregnancy and nursing and never noticed a difference with Zara, although I think it's good to not have it, and I'm FINALLY trying to start the process of stopping. Way to have willpower!

I used to drink about 6 sodas a day before my doctor got me off the stuff. But DC? With or without lime, that stuff is no good!
