What to drink during pregnancy?

I am not a big water drinker but I don't want to drink alot of soda. So what else is there that is good for me and the baby? It is like I need something to quench my thirst because I am always thirsty and water doesn't cut it.

  • I used to add lemon to my water. Water is really the best b/c it's devoid of the chemicals in soda and sugars in juice.

  • i know your asking what to drink...but can i just say this...dont drink gatorade! I was craving gatorade with my son, (i think because i was dehydrated from not enough water) and i blew up like a balloon and apparently alll the salt in the drink made my blood pressure sky rocket. I then had to quit because obviously of high BP risks. so ...thats just alittle side note what i learned the hard way. lol, I thoroughly enjoyed chocolate milk, lemon water, lemonade, ice tea....
