Water intake

Ok ladies, I am not a water drinking person. So I am making a huge effort to keep hydrated. What are some good ideas to help with getting enough water?

I have a sodastream and drink sparkling water. Sometimes I flavor it with a little cranberry juice or a lemon or something.

You can get crystal light or something to help flavor it. I'm not a big water drinker either and have been struggling with what sounds good to drink. Some tart juices have been good. My dr said that as long as you are drinking enough it doesn't have to be water.

Yeah. As long as its not filled with sugars or coffee or teas with too much milk then most liquids count. I'm also not a water drinker but I found that I will drink hot water more willingly than cold. We have a huge urn at work that is constantly boiling the water and I drink that.

I pretty much just drink water at bed time. I drink some other drinks. I'm struggling with my water intake too. Try some different types of water because you might be able to taste the difference and see which one is easiest.

I was super thirsty the last pregnancy. I think I was averaging 4 liters day and I never felt sated. This time, not so much.

I usually guzzle the stuff, but it tastes like pennies right now. I just bought some of that Mio stuff at target yesterday. I got a grape flavor and it isn't bad. Helped me choke down 3 big glasses today and I got some powerade too.

Jillie bean. You just reminded me to pick some mio or something similar at target. I went after work and still forgot. Crud.
