Splenda and Pregnancy???

I was just wondering does anyone know if if is ok to have splenda while pregnant?? Not pregnant yet but we are discussing it and my favorite soft drink has splenda in it. I avoid the traditional "diet" drinks while pregnant but don't know about splenda.

Thanks

I have no idea, sorry. But my 1st pregnancy I cut WAY down on diet soft drinks, but didn't cut them out entirely. I think in moderation it should be fine. But I also would drink 1 cup of coffee a day while pregnant too. Splenda is pretty natural, at least.

Have fun ttc!

I was going to say the same thing. We don't eat it now or if I were pregnant.

I don't really consume Splenda any time either - but I have been told that during pg it's OK (I think it was by a doc).
