Before I even start, I have to tell you that I saw the word water after I wrote it, and I had to look it up to make sure I was spelling it right. With my first pregnancy I adamantly denied the effect of pregnancy on the brain, but now I am embracing it. I cannot even remember how to spell water.

Does anyone else feel like they just cannot get enough fluids? I do not feel thirsty, drinking tons of water (at least a gallon) and cranberry juice (around 6 cups) a day, and still I have signs I am not getting enough to drink. My hands and lips are dry. Also, I am not peeing nearly as much as I am taking in, and sometimes I will have urethra discomfort. I cannot imagine drinking anymore. Anyone else?

I can't get enough orange juice. And I do have dry lips and hands-- I had chalked it up to the changing autumn weather, but I suppose pregnancy could play a role as well.

I am right there with you... I try and drink as much as possible but I don't think I am drinking enough!! No overt signs of dehydration but I just don't feel like I am getting enough fluids, even though I can't imagine how I would drink anymore!

I am drinking _way_ more than pre-pregnancy, and I am definitely still more thirsty. I drink a huge cup of water right before bed, and last night I sent my DH down in the middle of the night to get me another. And I was THIRSTY when I woke up. Totally not typical for me.

Hey, I'm thirsty again. Thanks.

Glad to know I am not alone. I feel like if I need to drink anymore I will need an IV drip. (Maybe that is what we need chely.)

Weasley, I cannot even think about drinking orange juice, ha ha.

nono, dh usually needs to get me more water in the middle of the night too. Then I like a large glass of cranberry juice when I wake up in the morning.

An IV drip sounds fantastic... except for the whole needle part!! I hate needles *shudder*

I'm having such a hard time getting my water in! I just can't drink it like I used to When I'm really thirsty, nice cold water tastes great. But otherwise, yuck!

I never drink juice, but I've been drinking some lately. I gave up my caffeine free diet coke b/c of the artificial sweetener

Decaffeinated tea is what I've been trying to drink lately. Maybe I'll go make some right now.

I'm drinking tons of water and still feel like I'm not getting enough too! I've quit drinking coffee and I really don't drink much else. I'm thinking some sort of herbal tea might be good, but I've got to figure out what's safe...

I never drank water before this PG (well, not never, but you know), now I can't get enough.

Except for my morning cup of coffee nothing sounds good. Not even non-caffinated options like juice or Sprite.

Back to water it is!

I am soo thirsty, I didn't have this with my other pregnancies. I always have a dry mouth, no matter how much water I consume. I'm glad this issue came up because it crossed my mind earlier that this might not be normal. It's nice to know I'm not alone!
