Are you drinking enough water?

Any hints/tips/suggestions to get enough fluids?

I have a horrible time drinking enough. It feels like a chore. Especially when it's not hot out. And I HATE having to pee all.the.time. I've been drinking green tea with honey every day.

Drinking water is not my thing. I drink gatorade instead. And even that I don't drink enough of. I am not a drinking fluids type of person.

I drink tons of water but with morning sickness I have to switch to sparkling water. My trick is just to keep it right in front of me all day so I don't forget. If I see it I will drink it.

I'm the same with drinking Gatorade. That's what I prefer I drink and drank during my last pregnancy. I hate water but drink it because I know I need to.

I am drinking anywhere from 1 1/2 liters to 3 a day. Sometimes more if I get thirsty. Now that I am reading that caffeine can pose more problems with miscarriage with the stuff I am going through I am trying to drink even more water instead of other things.

I don't usually drink much water but since being pregnant I can't get enough. I used to drink nothing but soda, juice or coffee. I have stopped now but I continued those habits with my last two pregnancies and they were born small for gestation. My first two I ate very healthy and limited caffeine and the were normal birth weight. I think the caffeine had something to do with it.

I'm definitely not drinking enough, especially living in Arizona. I need to get back in the habit if carrying my water bottle.

I looove water. It's all I drink. Other than like 1 glass of 100% juice a day. I have a hard time drinking it during the day for some reason... But I drink a ton of water at night in the hours before bedtime....
