How are you doing on water intake?

Still getting enough or not so much?

This last week I drank close to or more than a gallon a day in prep for 4D but I normally probably only drink 2 liters a day. I use my liter mug from the hospital and it makes it easier. I also drink dr pepper sometimes too though but not everyday

On days I don't feel like drinking any I just imagine my amniotic fluid being the same color as my pee and that helps! Lol I want my baby girl to have nice clear fluid to swallow

If I don't get enough during the day, I have a jug by my bEd @ night. So one way or another I get it all in.

Keeping a jug with you during the day helps

I have to slow down on my water intake in the third trimester because of how big the baby is and how short I am! If I drink all the water I'm supposed to I won't eat anything! My OB tells me drink as much as I can and everything will be okay because there is a liquid content in most things you eat too.

On most days I think I am getting my water in. On days that I am running around I have a hard time.

I drink plenty of water, but it's pretty much the only thing I drink anyway.

The amniotic fluid really gets yellow like pee? I didn't know that! I thought it stayed steril and clear... hmmm...
I drink when I'm thirsty, but some days I swear I potty constantly! So it kinda makes me not want to dink cuz then ill never stop going. Guess ill just have to deal. At least we have top quslity tp right? Haha

I thought I was getting enough water but when I was admitted into the hospital, they said I was dehydrated and set me up with IVs. Oops!

I ususally get enough but will definitely drink more. Don't want that amniotic fluid looking like pee. Does it really do that if you don't drink enought water?

I wasn't in the beginning. I'm not a big drinker. But recently with being parched 24/7 and craving ice lemon water I can't get enough! Thank goodness I am craving it or I probably would not be getting enough.
