I’m very newly pregnant (5.5 weeks), and we’re trying to keep it a secret for at least another month due to my history of miscarriages (I’ve had a couple, many years ago in a previous marriage).
The problem is, we are quite social, and everyone knows that I a.) like a glass of wine a couple times of week, b.) like coffee A Lot and c.) drink a couple of diet sodas a day.
I am fine quitting alcohol, and I’ve gladly switched to decaf at work, but what about diet sodas? I know Splenda seems to be okay, but living in a very small town, it’s hard to find diet sodas made with Splenda. How many of you follow that recommendation closely or not? Do you drink iced tea?
I’ve been found out twice already by very perceptive friends who know I never stick with water at restaurants or at a ballgame or wherever.
It’s really about not blowing my cover for another few weeks, but I’ll ditch the iced tea and non-Splenda diet sodas too if it’s that important.
