Probably, you can get a whole rainbow of colors throughout the pregnancy. What you'd be concerned about is if it's dark brown, bright bright red, pink (though pink can be normal so don't panic), if it smells awful (possible infection), or if you're having a lot of contractions and it's any of the above colors.

My doctors are all "yeah just eat whatever you can keep down"...but what happens when that's massive amounts of sugary root beer and cherry slushies? I don't drink soda, more or less ever, and consuming this much sugar seriously weirds me out.

I thought about trying to cut the root beer with club soda or something, but I don't think that would be very good, or have the same effect. Yesterday I drank a very large ("medium") fountain root beer and an enormous ("small") cherry icee. I don't think I've consumed that much sugar in the past two years of my life combined.
Have you tried diet rootbeer?

but yeah sugary soda is better than nothing at all

I'd just go with the sugary rootbeer. Sugar's not ideal and can cause too much weigh gain, but it sounds like any calories are good calories at this point.

Also, artificial sweeteners cross the placental barrier really easily, and linger in the developing fetus for hours. Much much much longer than in an adult human's body. The effects of that haven't been studied yet. I'll see if I can find a link about it. I think they found it was something like 9 hours after you eat them it's still in the baby.

Yeah, I know aspartame and stuff is considered safe in pregnancy but I'd be more worried about that than real sugar. Yeah, any calories I can get are good calories, and weight gain isn't a concern, but that much sugar can't be a very good thing.

I think you probably just need to pick your battles. what are you more worried about? the sugar or no calories? You can't worry about every little thing. I know it's hard not to but you are going to worry yourself to death

I would personally not use fake sweeteners. If possible, try a natural root beer. There are pretty many around, either made with real sugar or even better, stevia.

I have an EDNOS based on paranoia about food, so it's pretty much impossible for me not to worry about it. I see a nutritionist every two weeks, though, so I can ask after Thanksgiving or even call her.

I'm not sure if getting barely any nutrition/calories is worse or sucking down ounce after ounce of syrupy sugary soda is worse. I'm trying to limit how much of it I'm drinking and just sip it if I get nauseous, and I'm actually able to keep food down if I drink root beer with it, so I guess getting some nutrients other than just straight root beer makes me feel better.

I will go look for root beer with stevia or more natural sugar, though. I didn't think of that.

You *could* make your own root beer too, but that is a bit more work

I was just looking that up online actually I might try it, it takes a few days to carbonate, though.

Ginger is very good for for nausea as well. You do have to be careful to not take in in excess, like not taking the stronger extracts, but a cup or two of ginger tea (or ginger ale) is fine.
