Question Anyone else only thirsty at night?

Lately I have had a hard time drinking during the day. With meals or after meals I am just not thirsty. I can manage a sip or two here and there and often have to force myself to drink more than that. At night, though, it is a different story. I can easily drink over 64 ounces of water in an hour or so and as time goes on I drink more. I have a 32 ounce metal water bottle and will fill it 3 to 5 times from when I lay down till I fall asleep. Of course this means I have to get up 30 dozen times to pee in a zombie like state and is very disruptive to my sleep. Any one else going through this? I suppose it is good I am getting enough liquid but I wish it wasnt just focused at night.

I normally get up about seven or seven thirty but lately have been crawling out of bed by ten or eleven. My son asks me: "why do you sleep so late now?" I answer: "Mom-mom doesnt sleep well at night and has to get up to pee a gazillion times because brother is sitting on my bladder." His response: "Oh....well Mom-Mom all you have to do is pee before bed and hold it all night like I do, remember? It's easy you just have to give it your best. I know you can do it if you try."

I drink a lot right before bed too although not much in the middle of the night. Just pee, then go back to sleep as quickly as possible. What a funny, cute conversation with your DS!!

That's weird. I thought I was the only one lol. During the day I have to remind myself. But I do drink enough.
But during the night I wake up and think I'm dying of thirst. And I make sure my dinners don't have too much salt. But that's not it. And then I have to keep peeing. What a pain. Can't wait to be 'normal' again.

Yes! I don't like to drink anything really, and I have to make myself. So, that leaves me thirsty in the evening, and drinking water whenever I get up to the bathroom at night. I'm like this every time I'm pregnant. It's probably part of the reasons my babies come a couple weeks early, dehydration.

me too. I have to force myself to drink during the day. Then from 8pm-1am, I drink several big bottles of water. Of course then I'm up (like a zombie as you said!) going to the bathroom every hour at least. It's so annoying and frustrating!!

I'm thirsty around the clock, but more so at night. I usually drink 4 quarts during the day plus another quart or two throughout the night. The colder the water the better.

I must have really overdone it with the water last night. Not only did I have to get up to pee a record breaking amount, I think I slept walked to the bathroom a few times. Twice I fell off the toilet. The first time I sat on the side and kinda slid off and the second time I missed the toilet completely and ended up falling on my butt a few inches in front of the toilet on the floor. At least no one was there to see it. I cant wait until my bladder has more room again.
