    I have always been a water drinker but when I was pregnant with the dynamic duo I thought I was gonna float down the street some nights
    It takes about 4 hours for amniotic fluid to filter and all I had to do was think "who wants to swim in yucky water " so I would drink, then drink some more and pee a lot :imbar never had a problem with the pregnancy. Also drank a lot when I was breastfeeding both of them. I always tell my moms they need to drink plenty of water during and after pregnancy you'll be amazed at what a difference it will make.
    Still keep two 1 liter btls at work that I drink from during the shift refill from the tap at home, sometimes add lemon or lime juice for a change

    All this talk about water made me thirsty--soo I ran to get a big glass before I finished reading this thread. I like a fresh slice of lemon occaisionally but I think I'll try that rose's lime juice sometime. Working 12 hr shifts I have a hard time drinking but I'm always thirsty. The army issues camelbacks- a canteen you wear like a back pack that has a little straw you bite down on to drink from......wonder how much teasing I'd get to wear it to work? Glug, Glug ...aahhhh that's so cold and tasty!

    Careful if the suits here you they might think its a good idea and then they will make everybody wear one. Fill the canteen at the start of your shift with your beverage of choice and then you don't have to have a break because you can chart and suck your drink at the same time (gives new meaning to charting sucks).
    Next they'll wanna put the damn think on the other end and cut out the potty breaks
