After wondering the same thing, I asked my nutritionist who said yes but always be sure to check and make sure the artificial sweetners are at a minimal. While I love crystal light I have cut back because its overly sweet. As a substitute I get 100% fruit juice drinks and try mixing 1 part juice to 3 parts water. This helps my water taste a little better while not going crazy with the sugars in water. Another is taking vitamin waters and cutting it in half with water and saving the other half for the next day. Avoid though coolade mixes and the like. They have to many artificial food colors and sweetening those bad boys can bust the sugar bank.

Doctors have not found conclusive evidence if artificial sweeteners are harmful to baby. But testing has shown it to cause harm in pregnant mammals among other harmful effects. Most doctors advise against eating anything with artificial sweeteners when pregnant which could cause possible harm to the baby. Also if you like sodas you can add naturally sweetened juice to soda/selter water. When they say you should drink 8 glasses of water they don't literaly mean that you can get your fluid intake from other things including fruits and vegetables. But some fluid you take in should be just plain water. Even if it's one or two glasses a day. It's for your baby's well being.

i almost got some of those drink mix packets but i was worried about to much aspartame, which i usually try to avoid anyway, aside from the occasional diet soda.anyway it always has helped me to have lemon in my water, you could try that, or mixing water with a little juice is great too especially if you like flavored water drinks.and as long as you drink water it doesnt have to be plain.
