i would stay away from carbonated water because the phosphorus (the carbonation) competes with calcium therefore preventing complete calcium abosrption. the only way i think it is a good idea is if it settles your stomach with morning sickness and then once the m/s goes away i would switch back to good old water.
I think the phosphorus you may be thinking of is from coca cola or pepsi in which they add phosphoric acid to.
Carbonated water is just as good as still water. CO2 is not a hinderance to any biological function in your body.
My Ph.D is in chemistry by the way.

My Cup Runs Over Daily!
Gerolsteiner is great! It's 8% calcium per serving (for non-preggos); I get charley-horses when I stop drinking it. (I can't have diary right now.) It's pretty reasonably priced for mineral water. I would definitely advise making sure your water, sparkling or still, is full of minerals, they way it's supposed to be.
Thanks for your input, Inspired.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
