Hi ladies,

 

I wanted to get everyone's opinion about this...do you think it's safe to drink tap water while TTC? I live in NYC, where the tap water is supposed to be safe and drinkable but I'm a little concerned. And, since I've been TTC for more than a year without luck, I'm trying everything I can! I have started to limit my tap water and just drink bottled water (Poland Spring). Of course, i used to drink a lot of water so now, I am always feeling parched because I can't get enough bottled water!

 

What does everyone think?

Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

in many places the tap water tests as higher quality that bottled water. the only thing to worry about would be lead content if you live in a building with old pipes, but you could easily get your water tested for lead if you're worried. i drink tap water enthusiastically and exclusively.
