A squeeze and/or a slice of fresh lemon in either hot or cold water helped me through the first 3 months of my pregnancy. I unluckily suffered quite badly from nausea and vomiting this pregnancy and found that anything remotely citrusy would stay down.
As dehydration becomes a problem due to lack of fluid intake in these first weeks, starting off your day with a glass of warm/hot water with some freshly squeezed lemon will:
* Hydrate you
* Balance your pH levels
* Aid digestion (get your stomach working)
* Freshen your breath
* Help kick your morning coffee habit
It is essential when pregnant through the summer months to keep very well hydrated. An ice cold glass of lemon water will refresh and hydrate you. Try adding some fresh mint or ginger for some zing…
