It's extremely important that you get enough water while you're pregnant. The general rule is 8 8-ounce glasses of water a day, which, of course, is 64 ounces. However, going by what doctor's have said about the amount of water you need, 64 ounces is only enough water for a person weighing 128 pounds. To find out how much water your body needs, take your body weight and divide it by 2. The result is the amount of ounces you need in a day - half of your weight in ounces. Sounds like a lot, but if you make it a lifestyle change, you'll do fine. Another option to switch up your water a bit is to get "MiO." You can get them at your local grocery store in the area where you find Kool-aid and other water additives. MiO, unlike, other additives, is a more natural additive, and the little bottle will fit in your purse and give you 24 servings. In my opinion, they taste much better than the pre-flavored bottled water, and they come in a variety of great flavors. However you do it, drink lots of water! Don't dehydrate - it is one cause of premature birth.
