Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Water that is suitable for consumption is odorless, tasteless, colorless, and does not contain harmful microorganisms. All people, including pregnant women, need to pay more attention to the quality of the water they consume. Do not let, the consumption of water that was originally intended to eliminate thirst, it actually causes health problems.
Water that has an unpleasant aroma has high potential to contain dangerous substances, both certain chemicals or microorganisms that cause disease. If you find water like this, you should not necessarily consume it, especially in your condition who is pregnant, where a little or a lot of food and drinks that you consume can affect the health of the fetus in your womb. Consumption of water like this can cause you to experience health problems, for example poisoning, gastroenteritis (digestive tract infections), or other infections (for example typhus, hepatitis, intestinal worms). Clinically, you can experience nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and various other complaints.
If you experience this condition, of course the health of the fetus in your womb can be disrupted due to inadequate nutrient intake. It could also, the stress that your body experiences due to this complaint will trigger contractions that can lead to miscarriage if you are still a young gestational age. Therefore, you need to see yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician in order to get the right treatment.
However, if you do not experience complaints as mentioned above, chances are your condition is not dangerous. You can increase your drinking water and eat other healthy and nutritious foods to neutralize the water that is at risk of contamination in your body. Do not forget, be more careful before consuming certain foods or drinks, so there is no risk of causing health problems, both for you and the fetus in your womb.
Hope this helps ...
