Do not drink too much water at a time, instead you can carry a bottle of water and can take frequent but small amounts of it. This will help you stay hydrated and get rid of toxins out of your body. With good amount of water consumption you also preserve required amniotic fluids in your body. This fluid provides cushion for the growing fetus.
