  • Gingerail, tea, apple or orange juice, you could try some of those water flavorers. they kinda taste like koolaid. I don't like "flavored" water but those are good!

  • i loved strawberry lemonade. of course i didnt drink it all day. i used it as an incentive to drink water. but with all of my pregnancies, tap water would litterally make me sick, so i bought a filter. and it helped a lot. good luck.

  • Gatorade and I got along well at first, until I started retaining water. Juice was my best friend, but since I loved fruit juice popsicles best! And ice cream. I figure if it was sorbet, real juice popsicles, or similar, it was at least semi-healthy. I also tried the little Crystal Light packets mixed in to bottles of water.

  • I tried to limit caffeinated beverages since I was a big coffee drinker. I would try drinking liquids that are beneficial and taste good like the mixed juices, smoothies, shakes, etc.

  • The ONLY thing that I could drink and I actually craved it was I would fill a glass with cold water 3/4 full and top it off with cran-apple juice. It was light and not too sugary. I also could only eat green grapes. Hope you feel better soon! :)

  • Sounds like you're having those lovely early pregnancy symptoms. The ones that make everything taste gross.
    I drink/drank Pink Lemonade or Strawberry Lemonade. It just hits the spot when everything else just didn't.
