Besides water what is the best thing to drink while pregnant?

I know that you should limit sugar and caffine but I am soooooooo thirsty and water just isn't doing it for me so I am trying to think of something I can drink alot of with still being healthy about it .

With my 2 year old all I ever wanted was water but not this pregnancy!

  • I bought the Market Place (or whatever the Target store brand is called) version of Crystal Light. I bought a few different flavors and one was the Cherry Limeade. I then bought lime juice at the grocery store and added some squirts of lime juice to the Cherry Limeade as it wasn't as limey tasting as I would like. The midwife told me not to drink too much juice because that can cause the pounds to pack on.
