Basic Hydration

If you struggle with Hyperemesis gravidarum, talk to your doctor regarding Prenatal Hydration. The most popular drips are a Myers Cocktail, Immune Boost, or Top Shelf Myers with zofran. Even though many of the local OBGYN's approve the use of Zofran, we ask you to get their approval prior to appointment.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is the medical term for severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. The symptoms can be very uncomfortable. You might vomit more than three times a day, become dehydrated, feel constantly dizzy and lightheaded and lose weight. Fortunately there are treatments available, including medicines to prevent nausea.

The Importance of Staying Hydrated During Pregnancy

When it comes to maintaining good health during pregnancy, staying hydrated is crucial – particularly during hot summer months. Here are some of the benefits of staying hydrated:

  • Reduces swelling and constipation/hemorrhoids
  • Softens skin
  • Boosts energy
  • Lowers the risk of urinary tract infections
  • Reduces the risk of preterm labor and birth
  • Keeps you cool

To ensure you're drinking enough water, aim for 8-12 glasses a day (2.3 liters). If your urine is pale or colorless, and you're frequently visiting the bathroom, you're on track.

If you're struggling to hit your daily water intake, try these tips:

  • Add fruits like lemons, limes, and frozen raspberries to your waters
  • Avoid caffeine
  • Increase your fruit and vegetable intake
  • Milk, juice, sparkling water, tea, and soups all count as fluid intake
  • Listen to your body and drink fluids regularly, so you rarely feel thirsty
  • Drink enough fluids that your urine is pale and colorless or light yellow
  • Avoid the heat and exercise indoors or during cooler times of the day
  • Increase your fluid intake when you're more active

Dehydration during pregnancy can result in mild symptoms like maternal overheating, headaches, sluggishness, and dark or concentrated urine to more serious complications like low amniotic fluid, kidney stones, swelling, and birth defects. Urinary tract infections are also common, which can lead to preterm labor and birth.

Staying adequately hydrated is essential not only for your health but also for the health of your baby. Talk to your provider if you have any questions
