Aspartame or Sweetners

What is the reason you can't have aspartame, equal or splenda? Is it bad if you have once in a while? Also, what is you skipped your prenatal vitamin 2 days in a row?

I have been told over and over that Aspartame and Splenda are FINE in MODERATION. Like 2 servings a day 10-12 oz. each. Some will disagree? There's nothing you can do about the vitamin. I'm sure it's fine. As long as you've been consistent before and after missing doses.

I've heard that splenda is safe for pregnant women I asked my doctor and he said any of them in moderation is ok. I wouldn't worry about missing a vitamin or two.

I still drink my cup of coffee in the morning, with artificial sweetner, and I've been told it is safe. As long as you're not drowning in the stuff, it's ok. People can be insane about this stuff. Also, babies were coming out happy and healthy long before prenantal vitamins, so I don't think missing two days will hurt.
