Your body needs water. You can soak for weeks without food, but not without water. Do you know why? 7 Ways to influence your energy intake.
It fulfills a whole bunch of other important functions in the body, such as:
Water also ensures that your body temperature remains constant. Your baby is very sensitive to temperature fluctuations and needs water to keep his body temperature constant.
Most of the water leaves your body by peeing, another part is absorbed by your intestines and the rest you lose by sweating and by breathing. You must, of course, also add to what you lose. If you are pregnant, you also need to add a particle for your baby.
The rest of the water in the body disappears through the stool, the skin and the lungs.
If you are pregnant, drinking water is even more important than usual. Both for you and for your future baby.
The child in your stomach is still developing and you share everything with him. Even at birth, the kidneys and the digestive system are not yet fully mature. During your pregnancy you must therefore pay close attention to what you eat and drink.
At the end of your pregnancy, you have about one liter of amniotic fluid in your stomach. This is completely renewed every three hours by the water that is supplied by your organism. Water as a solution for pregnancy ailments. Drinking water prevents or relieves a lot of pregnancy discomforts:
During your pregnancy your placenta makes large amounts of progesterone. Flue and drinking water. Anti-Colds and drinking water. That hormone slows the intestinal transit. So eat a lot of fiber (fruit and vegetables) and drink a lot of water. That promotes the functioning of your intestines. Did you know that constipation is also the main cause of hemorrhoids during pregnancy? Being pregnant means more risk of inflammation of the urinary tract. Your uterus exerts pressure on the ureters and the urine transport decreases. This gives bacteria more chance. Drinking a lot - and thus peeing - ensures that bacteria are quickly drained.
Your body will retain more fluid if you are pregnant. Drink as much as possible and opt for low-salt water. This way the moisture disappears faster.
