Hi ladies, Hope you are all well & enjoying the nice weather
I'm currently 17+wks pregnant, & getting closer to my anomaly scan (in about 2wks) "just as well as the wait is now torturous" but as my pregnancy has developed since about wk13 i've had an incredibly sweet tooth. Its to the point of I can easily skip my main meal (which is usually about 4:30 - 5:00pm) for something like a trifle dessert or a few cakes.
But today has surprised me more than ever as i'm pretty certain I may have managed to drink more than 7 cans of coke today. I can usually be okay with something like 1 can every other day as it helps some of the headaches I get. I'm not sure if it's just down to the nice weather that has come about or it's something which my body is really craving / wanting. The fact that I currently manage a shop with my other half is probably the main reason why I also managed to drink so much as if I was to be running to a different shop to buy them i would have stopped myself.
As I said I dont yet know the sex of the child & I dont like to jump to conclusions "just in case I end up disappointing myself", But apart from that is this normal / "healthy even""?
All that caffeine that coka-cola contains has got to be a Lil shocking for a unborn child.
I'm now rubbing & playing with my bump to try & get a reaction of some sort & I think I can feel little strokes coming back.
What do you think ladies? any comment is all good
