Yes you can drink: Cold water when pregnant. From a traditional chinese medicine standpoint, the healthiest way to drink water is a room temperature. The concepts are a little complex & come from the perspective of eastern medicine. See: http://universaltcm.Wordpress.Com/education-information/cold-foods-cold-drinks-caused-health-problems/. Room temp water is optimal.
