Do you feel the need to poop after drinking soda?

I never really drank much soda before but during my second pregnancy I craved it so much that I started to drink it a lot. Now that I have to children I'm so tired I drink it to help keep me awake. None of the soda was helping very much so I started drinking Mountain dew as my sister drinks it and said it is the only soda that works to keep you awake. Well my husband showed me why that it has about double the caffeine amount then the other sodas I was drinking. Well usually I can drink soda all day and feel fine but after drinking 2 mountain dews I was all jittery. It doesnt do that to me much anymore since I'm more used to drinking it but I seem to poop a lot more now that I drink it lol. This is a really weird discussion I know but I am assuming that caffeine must be a type of laxative type thing. Does this happen to you when you drink soda?
