Why is drinking water important during my pregnancy?

Water is important in supporting the production of extra blood volume and plasma necessary for pregnancy. This increase in blood volume is essential for nutrient transport, placental function, and temperature regulation. Hydration is especially important before and during exercise to aid cooling and preventing cramping or Braxton Hicks contractions.

Pregnant women should have 0.1-0.2 liters of water before exercise and 0.05-0.1 liters every 20-30 minutes during activity. Pregnant women should consume 2 quarts of water through the day and even more if the woman is more active. If a woman experiences Braxton Hicks during exercise, she should cease activity, drink 4 glasses of water, void her bladder, and rest on her side. If the contractions do not cease, she should contact her healthcare provider.
