Nothing really important, no concerns I have or anything. Just curious as to what y'all are drinking. I've been very thirsty this pregnancy, and I've been drinking *tons* of water, the occasional caffeine-free soda, and pretty regularly, strawberry banana smoothies.
What Are You Drinking?
Ice water mostly. And JuicyJuice juice boxes. My kids don't drink juice, but I bought some as soccer-game snack-mom, and the game was cancelled and I got totally hooked and am drinking them all like crazy, but would never buy a whole bottle and drink it out of a cup. Maybe because I was denied juice boxes as a child?
In my non-pregnant days, I love my coca-cola. I'm guilty of buying those 20 oz ones at McDonalds. so I bought those teeny 7.5 oz cans to cure the occasional craving.
Also, RRL tea, and occasional soymilk with dinner.
Must be something in the water!
I haven't been able to drink *any* tap water (even the yummy well water from my folks' farm) this whole time. My first weeks of m/s I could only get down lemon-lime gatorade or lemonade. Now I'm on to the occasional seltzer, but mostly bottled water--I can't get enough! Thank goodness our co-op has a free filtered water station.
And as a special treat, an occasional root beer or hot chocolate. But really, I have to wash them down with bottled water!
Our water is actually filtered well water (we have an amazing aquifer out here in the country) but I get a garlicy aftertaste in my mouth whenever I drink it!!! I can drink from my IL's reverse osmosis too though, and it doesn't mother me, so it's weird. But I avoid any city water like the plague because chlorine is nasty stuff and I'm already sensitive to it. My hubby works in town and said that they've found there is 3x the amount of chlorine a swimming pool would have in the water here. DISGUSTING. And so wrong!! I keep thinking, "what are they trying to cover up!?!?"
I am going to start some RRL soon. I would have been drinking it from the start but I decided to wait a bit this time.
I'm drinking tons of water, too! I've also been craving cow's milk. A cup or 2 a day. It's weird, I do NOT like milk when I'm not pregnant, but when I'm pregnant it's one of my strongest cravings. I don't like soda, but was craving root beer in the 1st trimester, but I haven't had or wanted it in weeks.
