  • There is a lot of sugar in gatoraide too though so I wouldn't drink it all day.

  • I make juice spritzers. Get some fizzy water (naturally caffeine and sugar free) and put in a little bit of juice.

  • Yes the electorlytes in gateraide are effective in keeping you hydrated which is what a pregnant body needs. Are you from up north? Just a guess. LOL.

  • I personally wouldn't drink either one. Water, water and more water.

  • I wouldn't drink either in large quantities. Both are hard on your bones and teeth and they load you up with lots of calories that your body turns to fat without giving you any nutrients. Drink water instead. If water gets boring, add a splash of juice, and I do mean a splash - an ounce or two in a bottle of water. Or you can add a wedge of lime, orange, lemon, or strawberry to it (my son loves cantaloupe in his water for some reason).

  • Neither. The high fructose corn syrup can raise cholesterol. The sodium can raise blood pressure and retain water. The artificial colors are linked to cancer and birth defects. Drink water, keep you and your baby healthy.
