I never posted this before but probably should have. I have a friend whom had 8 m/c's prior to finally having a viable pregnancy. After my 4th m/c she told me to stop drinking bottled water as the high mineral content may cause miscarriage. This is what she did after going through so many different procedures.
I took her advice but, I also took oral progesterone for this pregnancy and am due on 1/16. I am not sure which one helped or if it was a combination but, high mineral content did make a lot of sense to me and I was drinking at least 4 bottles of spring water a day during each of my misses.
Well it can't hurt and those whom are having problems speak with your ob's and God bless you all.
I have heard that if you want to drink Bottled Water, drink bottled water from OUT OF YOUR STATE because there are more stricter regulations the bottled water have to pass before you can buy it on the counter. So, i would suggest, don't drink bottled water from your own STATE.
here where i live, we ONLY have bottled water.
You can choose from contaminated "regular" water, bottled or the one from the sea - that's all!
You surly put me in some thinking...blah <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif">
I'm working on pregnancy #3(week 22) and during the first two I drank so much bottled water that I could have filled a small swimming pool. Both of my pregnancies were normal and went to term. I'm not sure however, if the fact that I live in Canada and our standards are different makes the mineral levels in the water different.
It may just be bottled spring/mineral waters that has higher mineral contents. I also know that babies should never be given bottled spring water as the mineral content is poisonous to their systems that is why they make bottled water just for babies (I have seen this written numerous times). So hopefully there is bottled water that is available without the higher mineral contents. Good Luck.
