I’m normally one of those thirsty all the time water guzzlers. I’ve taken Matt’s advice though and it does work for me, to take in more salt if I drink and try not to drink much plain water. I’m less thirsty and don’t have to run to the bathroom a million times.
However, I’m pregnant and nursing (lightly), I also live in the desert and it’s HOT. When I test (urine and blood) it show I’m dehydrated, not a lot though.
Is this right? I’ve been getting braxton hicks already at only 15w (had em a lot w/my others too), and I think that’s a sign you need more water (and mag maybe). Thoughts/experiences?
I found that after my metabolism got higher, I had to start drinking more liquid again. I am back to drinking as much fluid as before I refed, without all the peeing and whatnot. Yes you probably need to drink more.
