What are the signs of dehydration?

  1. Maternal overheating can be a common sign of dehydration. If you aren’t drinking enough water, your body may have trouble regulating heat. This makes you prone to overheating.
  2. Dark yellow urine is another cautionary sign. Clear urine means you are hydrating well.
Mild to moderate dehydration can also cause these symptoms:
  • dry, sticky mouth
  • sleepiness
  • feeling thirsty
  • decreased need to urinate
  • headache
  • constipation
  • dizziness

If you’re experiencing these symptoms, drink water, and rest if you can. It’s also a good idea to call your doctor and explain what you’re feeling.

How to avoid dehydration

  1. Drink the recommended 10 to 12 – 8 ounce glasses of water a day
  2. If you have indigestion – try drinking your water between meals as drinking with your meals may make your indigestion worse
  3. If you are vomiting from morning sickness, try drinking plenty of fluids when you aren’t feeling nauseated. In cases of extreme morning sickness that make it impossible to keep any fluids down, speak with your doctor.
  4. Avoid caffeine, which can increase your need to urinate. Water is ideal, but you can also drink milk, natural fruit juices, and soup.

Your body and your baby crave water during this incredibly special bonding time.  Take care of you and your baby with a simple glass of water. 

Preparing for your 3D4D5D ultrasound — since you are already drinking your recommended 1 gallon of water a day when pregnant you are all set.  If for some reason you were not able to drink the 12- 8 ounces glasses of water a day ensure you do at least 5 days prior to your 3D4D5D ultrasound so you can see your baby’s face features.
