Chug, Chug, Chug!

When normal people hear the words "chug, chug, chug!" it's usually pertaining to some type of alcoholic beverage. My prior-to-prego drink of choice: a freezing cold Corona with a hefty slice of lime in it. Nothing says summer to me more.

Now, when I think of chugging, it's pertaining to water. And lots of it.

Never in my life have I found myself so thirsty. Ironically enough, for as thirsty as I am, I ended up in the ER with dehydration a little over a week ago...however I'm chalking that up to being a fluke because all I do is drink water these days. The doc informed me that, potentially being prone to dehydration, I need to consume about a gallon of water a day. To the average person, this could potentially seem like a lot...to me, it's nothing these days. I'm finding that I'm drinking at least 4-32 ounce Nalgene bottles full of water each day, in addition to the multiple glasses of milk I crave each morning. I drink water like it's never going to exist again. And as a result, of course, I have to pee every 20 minutes.

Ahh the randomness of pregnancy. It just seems to get more interesting every day...
