I drank Mountain Dew when I was pregnant.
We all have things we could do better and her daily mid-morning routine of one 12oz can of Mountain Dew is hardly a big deal - or anyone else's business for that matter. This was a routine we both had - a quick dose of sugar and caffeine in a convenient 12oz can. Neither one of us like sweets and for the most part drink water the rest of the day, so if that's the worst thing we did while pregnant, the world should be pleased. My friend politely thanked the stranger for her advice and we continued our conversation.
Okay, so we were a little disturbed by the comment so the next day we went to the mall with our 2 yr olds. They each had a mountain dew bottle (no Dew, just water), a jumbo box of Milk Duds (with the duds replaced with raisins) and a very large candy necklace (okay, that was real, but the kids didn't know it was edible). For the very pregnant moms, we each found the largest name brand disposable coffee cup we could find (filled with ice water). We then proceeded to walk throughout our local mall. Interestingly enough, no one said a word - lots of stares - but no comments. I guess we looked a little too crazy to be confronted.
You're probably thinking: they're just trying to help - it takes a village to raise a child. I do see your point and overall I agree. However, I am always looking for an excuse to relive my rebellious days and that's not easy when you're hauling around a 2 yr old and 12 months pregnant. Don't test me!
