Is Powerade ok to drink while pregnant?

It's all I've been craving. Is it safe?
It does say it has 10% of vitamin B3, B6, and B12 in each 8 oz serving.

  • Why not? It's better than soda. If you're worried ask your doc/ob, but I see nothing wrong with drinking it.

  • It is not safe to binge on it or to drink it daily because it has too much sodium and will cause edema and other issues. You can drink one a few time a week, but never more than one a day and never daily.

  • ThrivingMom.... It is safe to drink, it's not like you would die from drinking it.... I drink Gatorade ALL day long.. It is exactly what my doctor told me to do.. Water does not keep my hydrated enough and I have contractions all the time unless I am drinking the gatorade... Yes you might swell a little more but I think I would take that over early labor any day!!!!
