Hydration has always been important to me. I love to sweat and I love to move, but I hate to cramp up.
I have always done my best to make sure I am well hydrated to prevent cramping, but there are only so many bananas I’m willing to eat to load up on potassium. Speaking of cramping, that is one of the complaints I hear most often from my pregnant clients and friends: they wake up in the middle of the night with horrible Charlie horses – what a terrible way to lose sleep!!
Another thing that keeps mommies-to-be waking up all night long is frequent trips to the bathroom… but not this SOS-loving mama! Since SOS hydrates more effectively with less liquid (you will absorb 3x more water than from drinking water alone), I don’t need to drink as much at night to feel hydrated, and therefore make less trips to the ladies’ room. Bonus: I have not once woken with a cramp since drinking SOS before bed.
When I got pregnant the first time, all of my doctors talked about the importance of staying hydrated during pregnancy. Water is required for many of the tasks that a woman’s body needs to perform with a baby on board, AND hydration prevents pre-term labor. I didn’t need to get told that twice- during my first pregnancy, being pregnant with twins put me at risk for pre-term labor as it was, so I was determined to stay hydrated to the best of my ability for my whole pregnancy.
It gets hard to keep drinking water when you already feel full of baby. Thank goodness for SOS, it is such a nice sweet hydrating treat that seems to hit every pregnancy craving. While many pregnant women complain they get bored of water, the sweet refreshing taste of SOS eliminates that boredom.
I’m not there yet on this pregnancy, but, after the baby is born, should a mama choose to breast feed, she needs hydration more than ever. And, lots of it! Creating all that liquid nutrition requires even more hydration than being pregnant. So, in the “fourth trimester” of pregnancy, with your “outside baby”, you need hydration more than ever, and again: it’s SOS to the rescue, since it allows you to absorb 3xs more than water alone AND, now with it’s Organic certification, us mamas-to-be can feel good about drinking it for us and for our little babes… not to mention low in sugar!

Of course, the last phase for most mamas is trying to get the baby weight off, and once again, hydration is key. Our brains often confuse thirst for hunger, so staying hydrated allows our body to know when it is actually hungry, and helps to not over eat. I’m SO grateful to have discovered SOS Hydration to keep me optimally hydrated, and help me on every step of my baby / mommy journey.
