A Coke and a smile


Today, I drank a Coke.

Sure, you're thinking..."Who the hell cares, you're allowed a certain amount of caffeine while pregnant!"

But I have been really strict with myself about it. I haven't had any coffee or caffeinated soda in a little over three months!!

I love Coca-cola. I've been craving it. And today while spending a really nice day with my mom, I had a Coke at lunch.

And it was FREAKIN' AWESOME. You know those old Coca-cola commercials where the person, Santa or Polar bear takes a swig and then goes "AHHHHHH"? Well, that's what I did.

I'm taking this as a sign that I'm finally starting to relax a little. Of course, I'm not going to be drinking Coke everyday. Nor will I start injecting it into my veins. But I will enjoy some every once in awhile from now on....

I love the polar bear commercials, and the Santa coke cans that some out at Christmas! Glad you enjoyed your coke! Have you tried the caffeine free regular coke? I'm pretty sure they sell it in a goldish colored box.

Glad you were able to relax and get your caffeine fix! I'm not a big fan of coke, but I miss my tea. Being strict on myself as well

Coke was a HUGE craving of mine while pregnant and it helped with nausea, I'd have like half a can when it got bad. And once I hit the second tri, I indulged more often:). I STILL drink more coke now than I ever did because I craved it so much when I was pg, lol! So glad you are indulging - good for you:).

Good for you! Sometimes you just need a freaking Coke (or Pepsi if you so choose). I'm glad it was as good as you remembered. :)
