I Don T Like Water

Ugh! Is anyone having a hard time making yourself drink water?? I really don't want to. Problem is, I heard that you should never be "thirsty" while preg., as this is your body's last reflex to dehydration. I like OJ, milk, *Sweet Tea*, but I think water sucks, it's so boring, and it makes me PEE!! Someone tell me you're in the same boat. I'd also like to hear of any harm to baby from not drinking enough water. Thanks

Honey, I'm not a huge fan of water either. but you know what, you're body needs it. Drinking milk, and OJ is great, and unfortunately the growth of your baby will make you pee, it doesn't necessarily happen just because of water. Maybe talk to your doctor about perhaps finding an alternative for fluids you can drink. Personally, I haven't had any problems staying hydrated, however, I just suck it up and deal with the water issue. As for harm again I haven't heard of any but I'm sure they are out there. Talk with your doc, he or she will know best.

I dont like it either, but the baby NEEDS it and I am not willing to play russian roulette. I drink 128 ounces a day (doctor recommended) whether I like it or not. You body MUST have it to function properly. Your body uses it in every function. Its in all of your cells!!! Without it, your body will subst_tute other molecules that shouldn't be there. Adults may be able to handle these molecules, but COULD attribute to such things as cancer later down the line. However, Your baby need its very critically as its building from scratch. That COULD lead to so much disaster. Sorry, I know its not what you want to hear.

You could try some flavored water. It just like regular bottled water except it a flavoring to it to give it more of a taste. My favorite is strawberry. Drank it my entire pregnancy.

You can try mixing lime concentrate in water.....You can also try Tang or something !! Good luck with your baby.

Maddie, you and I are in the same boat, I am 7 months pregnant and I just can't drink water, its good to know that its not just me but I think we have to drink if not for us for the baby

have you tried Dasani water? To me it just tastes like the best bottled water out there. I buy it by the case and can drink one with satisfaction.

I like water, but many times I will add a little apple juice to it and it gives it a nice fresh taste. You AND your baby NEED water. Drink it for the health of your baby! HM
