Roles of fluid during Pregnancy
Fluid/water plays very important role during pregnancy. It helps in reducing common pregnancy discomfort such as headache, nausea, cramps, dizziness, acidity, indigestion and constipation. It also helps in keeping body temperature in control. Not only that, the most important benefit is that it helps you in reducing the chances of getting preterm contractions and delivering baby too soon. Water also helps after delivery for producing more breast milk.
Fluid includes water, coconut water, lemon juice, fruits and fruit juices. Don’t include fluids like caffeinated drink such as Coffee, Tea, Cola, Red bull, Mountain dew and aero rated drinks like Soda, Cola, and Sprite etc.
Drink more fluid if you are exposed to heat or exercising. Check the colour of urine to make sure if you are drinking enough.
If you are unwell, it is ok if you skip a meal but you must drink plenty…
