Effect of dehydration during pregnancy... 2
Posted  in 2013

  1. Humidity: Hot weather and humidity make you sweat, thereby leading to dehydration.
  1. Age: One of the problems of late pregnancies after the age of 35 is dehydration. Our bodies will be less capable to conserve water, and you feel fewer thirst pangs.

  1. Overheating: Heat exhaustion could overheat your body draining away all the fluids.
  2. Vigorous exercise especially in warm weather: This could make you sweat more and, when coupled with warm weather, can lead to dehydration.
    1. Fever: Body temperature that is higher than the normal could cause vomiting, loss of fluids and poses a high risk.

    Signs And Symptoms Of Dehydration In Pregnancy:

    Once your body is depleted of water, it shows the dehydrated symptoms and signs. It is vital for you to recognize them.
    1. Maternal overheating is a sign where your body has trouble in regulating the heat.
    2. Thirst is the initial and the most unnoticed sign. Do not neglect if you are thirsty, listen to your body and drink water. Maintain a routine of drinking water often, at least one glass an hour.
     3. Dizziness, vertigo or lightheadedness, usually when standing, kneeling or bending over. It happens due to the drop in blood pressure because of dehydration.
    4. Headache, especially migraines, is another prominent symptom of dehydration.
    5. Dark yellow urine with a strong odor. Clear urine means you are hydrating yourself properly.
    6. Braxton-Hicks contractions (painless uterine contractions)
    7. Dry mouth, nose, and skin which has lost its elasticity.
    8. Swollen tongue and chapped lips.
    9. Vomiting and nausea associated with abdominal pain and cramps.

    Severe Dehydration Symptoms Could Be:

    10. Weakness
    11. Lack of concentration
    12. Constipation
    13. Piles
    14. Urinary tract infections
    My advise
    1...   Generally, the first sign of dehydration is feeling thirsty.
    2..   People who feel thirsty after sweating, spending long periods of time in the heat, or going for long periods without water are especially likely to be dehydrated.
    3...  Signs of dehydration
    • a dry feeling in the throat or mouth
    • dry, chapped lips
    • dry-looking skin
    • less elastic skin that looks sunken or thin
    • less frequent urination
    • dark-colored urine
    • urinating less often
    • not sweating, even in hot weather
    • feeling weak or exhausted
    • constipation, hard stools, and hemorrhoids
    • feeling lightheaded
    Some people may experience Braxton Hicks contractions when they are dehydrated.
    4...  If you are pregnant you need to drink more water for your body needs and your unborn child's needs.   Your child needs 60% of water for proper development of his brain cells, heart and kidneys.   He also needs water to develop other parts.  So drink sufficient water to protect yourself and your child.
