Was just thinking about it this morning. Since 8 I have been to the loo 4 times. I have drank nearly a litre bottle of Volvic because I am absolutely gasping! I find that when I drink alot of water though that I almost get a pain in my bladder from it! I try to drink about 1.5L-2L a day because I actually feel dehydrated if I dont drink this much. Anyone else like this?

It's kind of getting a bit embarassing at this stage getting up from my desk every 10 minutes to pee! :o0

I drink 2-3 litres of water a day. I take 2 ltrs to work and probably have 1 when I go home. I know the pain in the bladder feeling but like you if I dont have that much water Im gasping.

I would also be gasping for water during the day. I drink around 2 lts during the day and i also have to wee very frequently but it does help with fluid retention. I also have to bring a bottle of water to bed as i wake loads during the night for water.

I don't drink enough hence I keep getting leg cramps at night O:| It was fine when I was on ML but now that I'm back at work (work in a lab) I don't drink enough. It's a pain to take off lab coat, go outside and get a drink. Although I should use it as an excuse to leave the lab lots!

I'm kind of worried now because I googled it (I know, I know I shouldnt have went near google!) & it says that it could be a sign of Diabetes :eek I am getting the Glucose Intolerance test done in a few weeks anyway so I suppose Ill know then

I am probably drining about 3 litres of water a day too, and I am starting to think that I spend more time in the bathroom at my office than I do at my desk!! :-8 I also take a pint glass of water to bed at night and by the morning I normally have it all drunk. I think I might turn into a fish by the end of this pregnancy.... I wouldn't worry about the diabetes too much kindanervous, I mentioned the amount that I was drinking to my doc and she didn't seem overly concerned by the whole thing at all. I am also getting the Glucose Intolerance test done in a couple of weeks, and my GP checks my urine every time I see her too so I think if something was wrong it would get picked up fairly quickly! And google is evil...... O:|

I know, I'm terrible for checking Google for everything! :ooh Actually when i think about it now my GP always checks my urine & the last time she actually sent it away to the lab because I thought I had a urinary tract infection so if something was gonna show up it would have then I suppose.
