It’s cool in autumn, rich in products, but it’s inevitable that the air is dry, so it’s always easy to be thirsty. Especially pregnant mothers, the situation is special, the need for water than before pregnancy is also different. Many pregnant mothers were puzzled, “just drink water. If you’re thirsty, what’s the point?”

▍ some water is not drinkable
1. Don’t drink boiled water that has been boiling for a long time or repeatedly
After boiling water repeatedly, the concentration of silver nitrite, nitrite ion, arsenic and other harmful substances in water increases relatively. After drinking boiling water for a long time, it will lead to low methemoglobin in the blood and synthesize methemoglobin which can not carry oxygen, thus causing blood poisoning.
2. Never drink tap water without boiling
Chlorine in tap water interacts with residual organic matter in water to produce a carcinogen called trihydroxy. Pregnant mothers can not drink boiled water stored in hot water bottle for more than 24 hours, because with the gradual decline of water temperature in the bottle, the organic matter containing chlorine in the water will be continuously decomposed into harmful nitrite, which is extremely harmful to the internal environment of pregnant mothers.
3. Don’t drink tea made from mug
Tea contains a lot of tannic acid, theophylline, aromatic oil and vitamins. If the tea is soaked in the water of the thermos cup, a lot of vitamins will be destroyed and the nutrition will be reduced, the tea will be bitter and the harmful substances will increase, which will cause the disorder of digestive system and nervous system after drinking.

Pregnant mothers can’t wait until they are thirsty to drink water. Drinking water should also avoid too fast, too fast or too big mouth. It’s easy to bring air in together, causing hiccups or abdominal distension. They should first put water in the mouth, and then swallow it slowly.
