During pregnancy, you'll need more water than a non-pregnant individual needs. During pregnancy you lose fluids quicker because a lot of the fluids you take in, leave your blood vessels and heads to your various body tissues. Benefits of staying hydrated during pregnancy: 
  • Less risk of preterm labor - a lack of fluids can kick preterm labor into gear.
  • Fewer headaches.
  • Less pregnancy dizziness and constipation.
How much to drink: Current research notes that about 12 glasses 8 oz glasses of water a day is a good goal. 12 is an excellent goal, sure, unless you happen to be pregnant and peeing all the time. Then it seems like a horrible idea to drink that much water. Keep in mind though, they're not kidding about the preterm labor deal. I've been there. Not being a fan of water (at least not when I was pregnant) I didn't drink as much as I should have, and ended up with the world's worst early contractions. Luckily my early contractions stopped, but not without a long, long emergency room trip, IV fluids, and way too much fuss. It was no fun. If you don't love keeping track of your fluid intake, you'll know that you're getting enough fluids if your urine is light yellow to clear colored. If water is too boring, try adding a slice of orange or lime. OR even add a splash of fruit spritzer.

I want to reassure <a href=http://borelioza.biz/>sac hermes birkin</a> you that battling head lice for months is not news to me but if you've been battling it for years, would you consider speaking with your physician? It's possible that you don't have head lice, which is also something I see in my profession. I'm not suggesting this is the case with you, but it's at least possible that you may have convinced yourself that you have lice, and now "feel" them. It happens, it really does.

Growing up my family was more low key; always at home(or our Grandparents house we born in June and they had a pool), homemade cake, usually just family(with our bday being after school let out only one school frien <a href=http://trc-kiev.com/index.php/en/>Michael Kors Gia</a> d ever came to our party we still friends with the girl to this day:). Our little girl and her 4 cousi <a href=http://www.inbiscoindia.com/>michael kors bracelets on sale</a> ns were all born within 3 months of one another so we have a season of birthdays for a 3 month stretch. One little cousin is only 4 days older than her so her mom and I always talk with one another before hand to make sure we don pick the same day to celebrate.
