Drinking water is super important, especially when you are pregnant. In the 15 weeks I have been knocked up my body can’t seem to get enough water. I am so thirsty all the time! Which makes sense because your body is working over time to create a new life. So it only seems right that your body needs some extra fuel to keep it going. My doctor recommended that I drink between 8 and 10 glasses of water (juice and soda don’t count) everyday. Drinking water can help with morning sickness, dizziness, fatigue and it can help prevent stretch marks, urinary tract infections and gestational diabetes (all common during pregnancy). So there is no good reason not to be getting your 8 to 10 glasses a day.
The problem that I was having was that I was just getting sick of drinking plain ol’ water. I was thirsty, I knew I needed it but I was just so tired of it. So here are a few ideas to spruce up your water. It is a amazing how much easier it is to drink water when you are actually enjoying it. I bought a small pitcher that I keep at my desk while I work. I make different flavors of water every day. These are just a few of my favorites.
