Wow, I'm a generally thirsty person anyway and I thought I was drinking a lot of water when I was pregnant. But, Holy Cow, between nursing and the weather getting warm, I'm drinking gallons of water! I can't get enough! I don't remember it being like this with Amelia, but she was born in January.....or maybe I'm just blocking it out.

Anyone else?

I'm probably not drinking enough. I still don't have very good post-partum bladder control, and I don't like to let my bladder get very full, so I drink small glasses of water instead of the giant glasses I usually drink.

I've got a never-ending thirst going on here. At least a gallon, I think. And it's barely even warm here yet.

I'm pretty darn thirsty these days. I LOVE the fact that my bladder can hold more now, though, and I don't have to pee every 30 seconds.

I'm drinking a lot of water... but it's NOTHING compared to last time around, when I was nursing a newborn in 95-degree weather and no air conditioning. ;-) At that point, I was draining a 2.25-qt. pitcher every night (like, from going to bed to getting up).

Alot! I'm in GA too and its starting to get hot and sticky so I'm drinking a ton, I keep that huge cup they give you at hospitals full of ice water at all times. Lizzie nurses alot more than my other kids did though so I'm sure that is part of it

Egads! I know I'm drinking at least as much as I did while preggo but I feel thirsty all the time. And I only pee like 3-4 times a day...which is kinda cool!

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

Isn't it though? I peed this morning, after not peeing all night (whee!), and seriously, it just kept going and going. Bladder capacity, you are MINE again!
