Could It Be Dehydration?

Remember the headaches I've been having? I read somewhere recently that mild dehydration can be a cause of headaches in pregnancy. Those who know me, know I'm a water-only person. I don't like coffee and I've eliminated the occasional soda or juice because of my sugar issues and I drink hot tea maybe once or twice a month. Otherwise, it is water. However, when I was having morning sickness, I got into the habit of drinking less. Recently I've made a concious effort to up my water intake and guess what? No headaches!

I'm kind of like my dad in that I don't like to take medicine unless I have to. I was glad I found the trigger so I can eliminate my pain without pills! (I think Brian is glad, too, because after hearing me complain of headaches for days on end, he brought home a bottle of Tylenol! I still resisted, though, and never had to use it. Thanks anyway, Sweetie!)

I hit the 5 month mark this week...

Thanks for the dress, Sarah!
