There’s nothing worse than a migraine or a headache, especially when you’re pregnant and can’t take many of the meds that usually help. Forgetting to stay hydrated can cause dizziness, low blood pressure and headaches or migraines. The first line of defense: plenty of liquids!
If you’re not drinking enough, you’re not peeing enough — and if you’re not peeing enough, you’re putting yourself at risk for a urinary tract infection. You need to be properly hydrated in order to flush out all those germs and toxins.
