Pepsi???<br><br>
I'm craving it. I quit drinking pop for MONTHS before I was pregnant. MONTHS. I'm trying to limit myself but water just doesn't cut it for me right now.

I've been craving root beer. And sarsaparilla. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"> I am also not a soda drinker, but that creamy vanilla-y goodness just gets to me!

Luckily, I haven't been craving sweets at all. But a non-Coke cola would really hit the spot right now.

I try to avoid pop too but I caved the other day and bought some (it was on sale!) I'm ashamed to admit how much coke I used to drink and I've been much better in recent years, but I figure an occasional one is okay.

Yea for three 'pop' (not 'soda') posts in the same thread! I've been on a water with splash of OJ kick for about a month, but for a while I was loving cream soda.<br><br>
Some of the summertime fairs around me will have a traveling pop man who has great cream soda and sasparilla and birch bear and lots of other neat drinks (I think without HFCS, but I can't remember)... My SIL usually drags us to three or four during the summer , but I'm really looking forward to that now!

I think it settles the nausea for me... We have some real cane sugar Dr. Pepper and I've had to indulge a few times. I've done really well avoiding the HFCS stuff when we go out (because I crave water, too!), but I have definitely been craving sodas!

I had a bad coke craving my last pregnancy. Dh drinks it and I always wanted some. I used carbonated water as a substitute and i worked pretty well although I still took an occasional sip.

Me, too! I had been avoiding it for months (even before pg) and then when morning sickness hit I only wanted soda ... I buy Cherry Vanilla Cream and Lemon - Lime Blue Sky .... so good.

I can't drink WATER right now - it makes me feel awful...but I'm so thirsty...so yes, I'm drinking more soda than I'd like to admit, but mostly juices. Hoping the water aversion will end soon.
