Dear Dee
I would rather not take any food or beverage which may contain cyclamates or saccharine while pregnant. Try drinking diluted fruit juices or spring water instead. Although there is no evidence that these sweeteners can cause birth defects, its always better to be safe when pregnant. Stick to simple foods and drinks that contain as few additives as possible.
Enjoy the pregnancy
