    I have always had diet everything...I didn't eat/drink it if it wasn't diet. With all of my girls I was drinking 600ml - 2L of either Diet Coke, Coke Zero or Pepsi Max every day. Until about 2yrs ago I had never touched soda that wasn't diet. Now haven't touched anything diet in 2 years. Don't know if it will make a difference?

    A few times when I told people I had reacted to Splenda they told me it was all in my head LOL.

    Yes I have my big boys also avoiding the stuff. My little ones don't do artificial sweeteners except for sugar free gum with Xylitol.

    Atomic- I have had splenda foods/drinks as well (without reading the label like you) and felt the same way. My husband is also the same..I definitely don't think it's in your head. I had a splenda popsicle over the summer and even up having a mental breakdown afterwards. It is scary IMO the people who still consume it without connecting the two...

    With DS I drank regular everything - soda (coke) and all other drinks were full sugar.

    On my girl sway i'm doing coke zero instead and sometimes i have a CL every day too. Splenda in my pep tea.

    Dr. Mercola scared me aware from the stuff, LOL. I was getting headaches every time I consumed it, and tried to look up the connection. I quit it altogether about 8 years ago, long before I was even TTC.

    Anecdotally...the very large majority of my friends have a PP. Really, it's kinda weird. But if I have a look at my few friends that have one gender only, well you might be right atomic...one friend with 4 boys who literally LIVES off of diet coke and diet sprite. Another friend with 3 boys who is naturally fit, hardly tries at all, no exercise, but drinks a LOT of diet coke. You might be on to something

    This is an interesting thread! I was debating whether or not to include aspartame in my sway but I don't think I will now since I have an autoimmune disease (celiac).

    Before DS1 I drank full sugar soda and drank CL with Truvia. I developed a corn allergy after having DS1 so I never drank soda before conceiving DS2. I do know a mom who got a girl after two boys and she was drinking Diet Coke regularly but I don't think it was in excessive amounts.

    I don't remember if I had a lot of diet coke with DD. I probably didn't as I was apoor student at the time and water was cheaper. But I def did not have it with my boys. Def boy lifestyle with them though and girl lifestyle with DD. I started drinking diet coke at the beginning of my sway (about 2 weeks ago) to get from meal to meal, but am now thinking I should either cut back or stop completely. I've always been drinking a lot of water, with all three of my pregnancies. Should I rather stick to water now? Especially since I have an auto immune disease?

    I think that in dietary amounts 1-3 servings a day it is fine for anyone except people who really feel like it affects them. I would not have more than that amount though.
