The weather is heating up, and if you are a pregnant mama you are most likely swelling like a balloon. You are always thirsty.
When you are thirsty there are only two things I recommend you drink….
1. WATER- Water aids your body in so many ways. Water will keep you healthy, Why not juice, even fruit juice causes major spikes in blood sugar. These can result in low energy, or that “morning sickness” feeling during pregnancy. Just water is good for the body, If you want to add a little flavour to your water try adding slices of lemon NO SUGAR.
2. TEA – Warm or cool, varieties of HERBAL teas have great nutrients in them. Drink camomile tea at night for an extra good nights sleep.
If you are a breastfeeding mom, you are likely always tired…. Time to drink water and tea, stay away from caffeine as it dehydrates you. It acts as a diuretic and removes water from your body.
