Water, water, water! How much water?

Seriously, how much water do you drink in a day? I know how important it is to be drinking water, but I am pretty sure that I am not drinking enough. I just can't stomach all the water any more. So how many ounces, gallons, glasses, whatever, of water do you drink a day? I used to drink water like a camel. Since I stopped nursing DD (it's been 2 years) I just can't get back on my water kick.

Re: Water, water, water! How much water?

I drink at least 4-5 8 ozs glasses everyday during the work week. Weekends I can get in my 8 8 ozs glasses. It is really I drink for the most part pregnant or not.

I drink 3-4 water bottles a day (yeah, yeah, i KNOW, but our water is AWFUL, IMO). Although now it doesn't seem to be enough....not sure what's up with that....hopefully NOT GD....

I drink about 3 or 4 water bottles too. I drink it out of a water bottle MUCH better than water from a cup for whatever reason.

Re: Water, water, water! How much water?

I drink a lot- some days I may fall behind but that is when I am too busy
I am good for getting in my 5-8 glasses a day
Weird as it is, a few days there it was giving me wicked heart burn ...odd, eh?

I"m a soda freak over here....so I drink things out of a straw really fast. So I just recycle the 32 oz soda Mcd's cups with a straw. I drink at least 4-5 of those a day....

Re: Water, water, water! How much water?

I drink it all day but I do understand how hard it is. I happen to like water, especially when pregnant so it is easy for me. Eating on the other hand, not so easy. I believe the formula for the absolute minimum you should have is 1/2 your weight in oz. So if you weigh 160lbs you need a minimum of 80 oz a day while pregnant. Absolutely no less than 64.

There was another thread a few days ago where lots of mamas listed their suggestions for making water more appealing. It had great ideas!
