Pregnancy Journals – 18 weeks – day 1 – You may be in need of electrolytes!
I am struggling to stay hydrated during this pregnancy, well… all my pregnancies. Although, I don’t through up food, I do vomit water daily. Over the past week I have been consciously seeking out tasty ways to increase my hydration and electrolytes balance. I am losing liquids and electrolytes rapidly, and have become severely dehydrated. I have tried a good number of drink recipes, foods and products to achieve my goal, but I have to say I am particularly enjoying Coco Hydro: Instant Coconut Water by Big Tree Farms. The electrolyte drink mix uses, “5 essential electrolytes your thirsty cells and swooning heart love: Potassium, Calcium, Sodium, Manganese and Magnesium.”

Why Read Pregnancy Journals?
If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or just curious about pregnancy, follow my pregnancy journey by reading my Pregnancy Journals. This day-by-day diary expresses my pains, feelings and all the embarrassing moments I am going through as pregnant woman. Yes, there are companies that also provide a day-by-day or week-by-week list of pregnancy info or scientific analysis, which is wonderful, but not sufficient for most. As women, we want to know we are not alone and my pregnancy journals will give you that and more. I am a person that is going through the same adventure you are and have before. The truth is, those other companies are providing you with the same information your doctor or midwife will convey to you during your appointments or calls. During my first pregnancy, my male doctor had no insight regarding real ways to handle certain issues. Example of a topic: Lochia. Yes, your doctor or midwife can tell you technically what is happening, but they don’t give you the best/easiest way to deal with it. How long have women been giving birth and even hospitals haven’t been able to figure it out. I did, here is my article: Don’t be ashamed buy some depends. If you are in need of information from a Mom’s perspective, submit questions through my Ask section. I am excited to share my experiences with you!
