Water and Other Fluids
Your baby is always thirsty so it’s important for you to drink plenty of water while you’re pregnant. Water carries nutrients to your body and to your growing baby, carries away waste products from your baby and from you, keeps you cool, helps prevent constipation, and helps to control swelling. Drink plenty of fluids every day, including water, milk, 100% juice, and soup. Drink water regularly and drink more in hot weather or when you are active.
