Staying hydrated is especially important late in pregnancy. Drinking ample fluids will give you energy, help keep pesky colds at bay, and even make your cheeks rosy! These fluids will also transfer into your amniotic sac, giving baby energy and sustenance too. You’ll both need the boost when it’s time for delivery.
But how much water can a person really drink in the course of a day?! Over the past few weeks I’ve tried to get creative with my hydration tactics. I’ve been snacking on foods with high water content like watermelon, celery, and cucumber. And while I still drink a ton of water, I’ve been alternating between regular and sparkling, and even squeeze some lime or lemon into a few glasses a day just to jazz things up a bit.
