Healthy, Natural Pregnancy: Drinking Water

tips for staying hydrated (including when sick).
How much water do we usually need, and how much extra for pregnancy (and why)
also for including enough water in your day (reminding myself!)
-make interesting beverages that encourage you to drink (stevia lemonade, iced herbal teas, etc.)
-fill up large containers with water, so you know how much you've had
-try to drink more in the morning

Link to guest post on hydration- it says much of it

It was easy for me first prgnancy- I was teaching, just kept water bottle with me at all times, and I wanted to drink because I was talking all day. Second time around wasn't so bad either- just made a conscious effort to keep a large glass of water around all the time, tried to keep track of how much I had, etc.

This time, I just plain old forget. I hit 4pm and realize I've only had a smoothie and two glasses of water- definitely not enough! I try to get more in once I realize but this inevitably leads to multiple pee breaks through the night, making my sleep less restful (and who knows when the dreaded insomnia will hit again).

How I'm goign to work to improve this:
tips above
make a tally sheet to go on fridge or in my planner

How do you make sure that you're staying well-hydrated? What are your little tricks for ensurign that you get enough water and liquids in each day?

A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies eCourse

I don't know if you've seen it or not, but I've shared a couple times this week about a collection of resources I'm honored to be a part of with some really brilliant authors and bloggers.

Before it's gone, I wanted to make sure that you knew that "A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies" eCourse is included in the collection. If you're anything like me, you want to learn more about using natural methods for taking care of your family, but sometimes it's just hard to know where to start. Roxanne and Wendi have done a masterful job of boiling down the complexities of wholistic family care - including homeopathy, cell salts, essential oils, probiotics, and a bunch more - and making it really accessible for regular moms.

The crazy thing is...although they usually sell the eCourse at $95 (and it's a steal at that!), they've agree to include it in the special collection of resources I've helped put together, for only $29.97.

But, if you think getting a crash course in natural remedies at two thirds off the regular price is awesome, I think you'll be surprised to learn that it comes with 98 other resources handpicked for moms like you and me.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be.

Now, you're obviously not going to read every eBook, and every eCourse (that would be a bit much!), but I think you'll find a number of resources in the collection to inspire, teach, equip, and encourage you in your role as a homemaker for years to come.

Valued at over $1290 but at a price tag of just $29.97, this is one tool your home can't do without!

Plus, everyone who buys a bundle through Keeper of the Home gets a bonus 2 oz. liquid herbal remedy AND our very own 4 ebooks, all designed to help you with more affordable, healthy homemaking. Learn more HERE.

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 27.
