I am a terrible water drinker!!! I usually have about 2 glasses a day. so bad I know. I'm trying to drink more and I mix it up with cuppa tea in the am and usually a milk drink at night, then a glass of water or 2 during the day.

It's shameful really as Christchurch water is perfect straight from the tap. coming from natural underground reservoirs, untreated. I really should drink more!!!!!

I have a horrible overactive bladder so my doctor wants me only to drink when I'm thirsty and not to shove water down my throat.

I'm probably not drinking as much as I should, but I always have something to drink around I just don't chug it down all at once. I am not a good water drinker either, I probably have 2-3 glasses a day. I have been drinking Dr Pepper, Gatorade, Chai Tea (usually iced), Squirt, and water when I can. Yeah, not so good, but it makes me happy.

I've been sipping water all day here lately. Since my heartburn has died down, it's really helped with the pressure from the reflux. I also drink other things during the day, too. Orange juice and cream soda with meals. I wanted to not have any kind of coke this pregnancy because I inherited horrible teeth, but something in it really helps with my nausea.

I drink a ton of water bottles daily. When my doctor checked my urine she said, "well you totally arent dehydrated." I am literally drowning myself daily.

I drink about 3 bottles of water a day. At least one glass of milk, maybe two. I feel like I should be drinking more water.

I drink about a Nalgene and a half of water throughout the day, a cup of tea in the morning, a glass of juice, and a big glass of milk. At dinner time, I drink a lot of sparkling water (it mixes it up a little, it feels a little "special", and I love the carbonation right now).

I am very proud to say I'm drinking my 6 to 8 glasses of water a day! I also have one cup of coffee in the morning and usually one small glass of milk before bed. I'm very prone to uti's and bladder infections so I have been trying my best to prevent this! So far so good! Also helps with trying to prevent stretch marks... I bought some juice at the store but will only have some every other day. Juice can help make you gain weight really quickly because of the sugar content, and I'm not trying to do that!!

A cup of coffee in the morning and lots of water the rest of the day. I rarely drink anything else.

I have some days where all I drink is water, but I only drink bottled water (water from the tap here is gross) and so if there's no bottled water I drink juice, or soda. Terrible I know. I dint think I've had any water today :/
