Quoting Mommy to be to #4: My sister in law drinks a coke before hers. I dont know what I am going to do tomorrow I want to make ... [snip!] ... and that will help. I know I have to drink a quart of water before hand so a coke might not be a good idea for me lol.
The quart of water thing is so weird to me. The whole point is that the more water you drink the clearer the amniotic fluid is...so, it doesn't do any good unless you are drinking a lot of water anyway.
Unless you are supposed to drink it RIGHT before, because when the bebs is still really tiny it's a lot easier to see when your bladder is full. But, by the time I was far enough along for the level 2 scan (the one you find out the gender) I was told the baby was big enough it didn't matter if I had a full bladder or not.
Different strokes I guess.
OH! And I meant to add, if it is just so your bladder is full, it won't matter that you had a coke. Your bladder will just be extra full. Either way it sucks lol
