It is always “Hot in July.” But if you are pregnant it is essential that your body is properly hydrated with at least eight glasses of water a day. How you treat your body can have a tremendous effect on a fetus.

Here are some hot tips for staying hydrated for yourself and your unborn child:

  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water or hydrating fluid a day.
  • It is good to stay hydrated because water delivers the nutrients to the fetus.
  • Water facilitates the delivery of nutrients into the cells, and it transports vitamins, minerals and hormones to the blood cells for the fetus.
  • The rich blood cells reach the placenta and ultimately your baby all with the help of H2O.
  • Water helps eliminate waste and flush the kidneys.
  • Water helps keep the body cool while pregnant.
  • Water helps combat fatigue when pregnant.
  • Drinking water reduces swelling and controls water retention.

So this summer, remember to be good to yourself — and have a drink of water on me.
