  • I drank limited amounts of orange juice too much and I got heartburn. I also drank cranberry to help cleanse my kidneys and drank grape because I missed my nightly glass of wine.

  • To help with constipation this pregnancy the Dr told me to eat and drink pulpy fruit specifically oj. Nantucket Nectars has Orange Mango juice, it's awesome! I even froze it and made my own popsicles. I also like cranberry juice, not pulpy just the only other kind of juice I like.

  • My doctor told me not to drink a ton of juice because it really doesn't have as much nutrients as regular fruit, and it has 12 times the sugar content of a piece of fruit. Drinking a lot of juice can up your chances of having gestational diabetes as well. But I do like juice! So here's what I did. I used either sparkling water, or water on ice with a splash of any juice for taste. Water is so important, but I hate it, so it helped me get through that whole deal!

  • My doc recommended V-8 Fusion to me while I was pregnant. It is lower in sugar because it ia half vege juice, and happens to have more vitamins.

    When I give my kids juice, I only use vege/fruit juice, as well.

  • Oh and second thought here! LOL Um, if you are getting an upset tummy when you drink juice it's probably too much acid and sugar for you right now. So watering it down would probably be a good thing, and you can still enjoy your drink!
