More fluids are necessary for a multitude of functions including providing for the expanding blood volume that helps to carry nutrients to mom & baby. And when you’re nursing, you will need the extra fluid to maintain a healthy flow of breast milk for your baby. Drink about eight to ten 8 ounce glasses of non-caffeinated, non-caloric fluids per day. Caffeine in excess can be dehydrating and high caloric drinks such as soda and juice can add up extra calories. Plus the added bonus is that drinking a lot of water is the best way for your skin to get that healthy glow!
Even if you are not pregnant or nursing, be sure to drink lots of water, too. Especially if you are working out with us outside this summer.
