  • Problem is bottled water only has to be as clean as tap water. Maybe invest in a water filter. I have always had tap while pregnant though.

  • i always drank tap water with both my pregnancies I asked the dr if it was ok. He asked me which water did we have well or city and i told him well water, he said it was fine I didn't think to ask him what was wrong with drinking city water out of the tap.
