Eating correctly when you are pregnant is one of the most important steps to building a healthy baby. Your body provides your fetus with everything it needs. You need to eat for both your health and your child’s health. Make every calorie count and even do double duty to provide your baby with everything you need to stay healthy.
Carry a water bottle and use it! If you live where there is clean water, tap water is fine. You’ll need about 68 ounces of water a day, but some can come from other foods and drinks. Your body ensures your fetus gets all the water it needs but may short you. If you become dehydrated, you can suffer from headaches, anxiety, tiredness, bad mood and reduced memory.
