  • okay i do know this from first hand i was sent to the ER room because i was having these weird pains in my stomach turned out that i was dehydrated and because of that the baby wasn't getting the nutrients need so he was leaking the fluids out so they started pumping more fluids into me and boom his levels went up so not drinking water can have an affect on you.
