Water retention during pregnancy: we have the solution!
One of the most common, and most annoying, symptoms of pregnancy is water retention.
This discomfort, mainly brought on by the changes in hormone levels and the pressure that the foetus is placing on various points of your circulatory system, is accentuated as gestation progresses, even more so during hot months.
In order to avoid water retention, you can perform special “hacks” within your daily routine which could help you avoid this discomfort, or at least delay it. One of these hacks is to maintain your levels of hydration by drinking all the water needed throughout the day.
How do you know what your adequate levels of hydration are?
