Anyone else always thirsty before bed and in the middle of the night? Any physiological reason for it?

My midwife tells me that it takes at least 1 gallon of water a day to sustain a pregnancy, and if you're not drinking 1 gallon, your pregnancy is going to take your liquids, and cause you to be thirsty.
To remedy my issues with it, I have a huge thermos-mug thing that I got from the hospital I had my last daughter at. It holds about 2 liters of water and has a lid with a straw, so it's easy to drink at night. I fill it up before bed (in addition to my daily drinking) and if I need it, it's there all night. Even when I don't have water all night, I still have to pee all night so I don't consider it too much of a pain.
I hope this helps you some, and I hope you get lots of rest!

Get up to pee
Get up to pee
Repeat until morning!
My DH hasn't complained, but I'm wondering if I've started snoring or something that's drying out my throat. Cuz no matter how much I drink during the day [I aim for at least 64 oz of water, plus a cup of decaf, and whatever else sounds good], I drink at least another full glass during the night. AND I'm up peeing all night. Very annoying.
i am always thirsty to and i figured out why. it is because there is a whole in you stomach and all the water is leaking out ito your legs if you body fills up it could cause harful or leathal damage. call a docter now
I have the same thing happening! I do kind of wonder if I don't quite get enough during the day as I'm caring for DD, and then I make up for it at night? It seems to be soon after she goes down for the night that I start drinking water like a fiend!
