Response to why do i have to drink a lot of water?
I can tell you that when I didn't take it very easy and forgot to drink enough water, I'd get red spotting.
Your body needs extra water because right now, it's busy making extra blood, (something like) blood volume doubles in pregnancy. You need lots of water to do that and if the body feels stressed, then it starts giving you signs.
I was amazed at how easy I had to take it. It was nuts, I felt like some kind of princess. lol
So put your feet up, pull open a book and sip that water (or any kind of liquid that won't dehydrate you)
keep us posted. and glad to see you are on P4 support.
