What have you had to drink today?

Are you drinking enough water these days?

The title of this post just made me so mad at you!!! lol I cant wait till I add a marg to the list below...

Today I have not had enough water (about 40 ounces which is two of my water bottles), but I enjoyed a glass of juice with my yogurt and fruit this morning, and a chocolate milk shake with lunch, and I was sipping on a bottle of ginger ale while driving around, and finished that too...

All I drink is water usually.. TONS and TONS of water. Sometimes I have lite cranberry juice that is further watered down just to have something sweet. And I used to have the occasional diet ginger ale.

I REALLLLYYYYY want a cherry slushie/slurpie of some kind. After the baby is here I can.. but I won't risk it before.

LOL! My other question was going to be, "What are you most looking forward to drinking after you give birth?" but I decided to leave that one off...but it won't be long now!

I've had about 40oz of water today, and a Diet Coke. I definitely plan to get in some more water.

And, in general, I struggle with drinking enough water.

Water, water and more water! I am a weight watchers gal, so water is a food group for me, haha (don't worry, I'm obviously not doing ww right now, it's just a habit though). I drink 100+ ounces a day. My doctor told me she wishes all her patients' urine looked like mine--probably THE weirdest compliment I've ever gotten, and yet it made me oddly proud. I threw an iced, decaf caramel latte in the mix today, and am sipping it right now. Delicious!

Oh and I am just dying to have a glass of wine... THAT will be my first "beverage" after baby comes. Just had to throw that in there... hehe.

I've had about 5 cups of water so I still need at least 3 more cups to make the day goal. I also had a cup of orange juice to get little one moving.

It has been decided that we are going to have a champaign toast in the hospital after baby is born, and I can not tell you how much I am looking forward to it!!!

Fantastic, now I want a BEER ; )

I drink a decent amount of water. We had fast food for lunch so I had a soda. We don't typically eat much fast food at all but MAN I crave it. What's UP with that

I had water (not enough, I never do) and an Orange Julius. To answer your question that was left out...I can NOT WAIT for a Budlight or Michelob Ultra!...Almost there now!

I generally don't have trouble with drinking enough water, I love it. Today I have been drinking more juice because my throat hurts. I don't normally have juice in the house and I feel a little bad about all the sugar but since I can't do much else for my sore throat, I am trying not to stress about it too much.

Follow up: I don't think there is anything that I am looking forward to after the baby is born. I don't like alcohol anyway so that isn't an issue and I do like the occasional soda but I have had a couple of those while pregnant so I don't feel deprived. If anything my diet is more restrictive when I am nursing so I am trying to enjoy some things while I still can.

I never drink a lot normally, and I am not much better now, but I try when I remember. Today I had some orange juice and I'm still sipping from the same water bottle I started around noon. Now that I think about it, that's really pathetic.

I am soooo thirsty today, to the point where I am getting concerned. I've had a bunch of water, (a slushie, shh..) 2 glasses of OJ, and more water. Still thirsty.

I am also really thirsty today- I think it's all the dry winter air. Who knows if I'm getting enough though.

I've had lots of water, a glass of milk a little while ago, and a lovely pomegranate lime mocktail at dinner out!

I'll look forward to real cocktails once baby is out as well as beer & wine that I drink as fast as I want. I have still had the occasional glass of wine and a few beers (I've been using O'Douls to cope with the lack of real beer, which I can drink fast if I want) so I am not feeling totally deprived of those.

Umm well, I did start off the day with coffee, which I know is bad, but I followed it up with a bottle of Gatorade, water, hot tea with honey, and a tall glass of grape juice
