This may seem like a weird post. Why and how can/would water bottles be a good accessory? Hear me out . . .
We all know how much water we should have every day, and we all know why it’s important. But I bet most of us don’t get as much as we should. If you’re anything like I was 8 months ago, you probably think the doctors tell you to get more than you really need. Being pregnant proved all my thoughts wrong especially being pregnant in July in Florida.
I can’t tell you how many days that I drank as much water as I used to only to feel dehydrated, which led to headaches and nauseous, which lead to exhaustion – all on top of what I already felt from growing a human. Then 100 degree temps came . . . and we all know how much worse it got. But the days I drink 64-100 ounces of water, I feel great. I feel better and healthier than I ever have before. My feet and hands have only swollen twice the entire pregnancy, and I’ve only gained 13 pounds. That’s not to brag; I say it because I know it’s because of the water. I can only imagine how much better I’ll feel when I keep this up after that human has made his grand entrance.
Not everyday is perfect. If everyday were perfect then I wouldn’t know that the 100 degree days make it worse – those didn’t come until the end of my 2nd trimester. Just two days ago on Sunday, I had a coke zero before church and then went to church without my water bottle. We’d only be gone an hour so I’d be fine right?! It was 100 degrees outside, I had on black leggings, it was hot in the church building . . . I made it to the last song and then we had to leave before it finished I felt so bad. Most days I get my 64 in, and fancy water bottles that make me want to show them off is how I do it.
kate spade glass water bottle – sometimes you just need plain water and a fancy water bottle to encourage you to drink it.
work it out water bottle– if you’re having an active day, one that makes it easier to drink is perfect.
bloom tumbler – straws make everything better in my opinion.
fruit infused bottle – if you need something that has flavor this is your go to.
camelbak 1L bottle – i really like the big ones like this because they break it down. 2 of these a day and you’re good.
