So with Charley and Henry I drank very little, if any, caffeine. I would have a pop late in the pregnancy if I was driving a long distance. Other than that I cut it out of my diet. With this one I have been enjoying one a day...sometimes every other day. I ran out of Dr. Pepper the other day and vowed to not buy any more during the pregnancy. But of course, today I am craving it.
So here is the sad truth about what I go through for my fix...never more than one a day and always before noon.
1. I have called neighbors (thanks Kirsten!) and asked if they had any and sent Charley on a "Mission" with 50 cents in hand. This doesn't just give me a pop fix, it also gives Charley a moment away from me to run off some energy and grab some fresh air.
2. I have blogged about my bad days and my craving and have had friends appear or leave a mystery Diet Coke on my porch (Thanks Paula!).
3. I have friends who drop their kids off for a play date and also hand over a Diet Coke (Thanks Lynelle!).
4. And today I pretty much held a little boy hostage in my car so that his mom would deliver a Diet Coke to my window in exchange for her son, because it was POURING rain and I would melt if I got out of the car. Just kidding- she had an umbrella because she would melt too. No for real she came out before I could get out...darn it because I wanted to get a peek at her kitchen remodel.
All of these instances have occurred when I have sworn off buying it to have in our fridge. And it lasts for a while and then I go back to buying it. I hope that all of these friends who have helped my sanity know they can call on me at any time for a jar of homemade jam, a bottle of wine, or a can of....well probably not Diet Coke since I will most likely be on one of my "No Diet Coke kicks," but maybe a can of cream soup, an egg, or a cup of sugar.
