Just wondering...when are you thirsty? It seems to me no matter how much water I drink during the day my little bunndle of joy knows when I lie down to sleep. I wake up so thirsty all night long. Does this happen to anyone else?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I have the same problem, of course I can't drink all night long, because then I have to pee all night long too!<br><br>
I keep thinking I need to drink more during the day, but how much can I really drink?!? Here at the hospital, because of our tropical climate they recommend that pregnant women drink 90oz of fluids...SHEESH!<br><br>
it's only 9pm here

Yeah, I wake up thirsty, too. I keep some water by my bed so I can have a little - seems to take care of the problem, at least until the next time I wake up.

From like 5-10pm, I drink water like we're going to run out. Then I pee all night. I was actually a little worried about GD as I've been drinking so much, so I'm glad to see this thread.

I wake to pee at 3 am then have trouble going back to sleep. Haven't ever thought I was thirsty, but I have been getting headaches. I'll have to check with myself on that one tonight, and see if that's the problem. If I drink alot in the evening, I wake constantly all night long, so I try to avoid it.

All night long. Wake with painfully full bladder and dying of thrist, guzzle water, go pee, try to get back to sleep. Repeat. sigh. I don't remember being this thirsty with any other pregnancy. Then again, my kidneys feel great this time and didn't the past times. hmmmm...

if I wake up (to pee, or because DD woke up) then I notice I am *very* thirsty. but otherwise it doesn't wake me.

I drink a gallon of water a day. Easy. It's very frustrating, but if I cut down on how much I drink then my pee turns dark yellow VERY fast so I try to make sure I keep drinking. I'm that thirsty, too. I don't drink during the middle of the night because I like my water ICE cold and at night the water is too warm and my mouth tastes nasty. So in the morning I usually get started with a quart, then I slow down a bit.

You know I drink soda - not exclusively, but a decent amount. And I think the salt content may allow me to drink less. Has anyone found anything with electrolytes that is not horribly bad for you? (Gatorade is pretty much soda when you compare ingredients IMHO)
