  • I did during the middle couple months of my pregnancy. I would fill up pitchers and keep them in the fridge, and drink 5 or 6 of them a day.

  • When I was pregnant, I couldnt get enough. Really like 2 gallons per day. It was the only thing that kept the hearburn at bay. an ex-BF mom told me once that water GAVE her heartburn while she was pregnant. LOL Pregnancy is a weird weird thing.

  • Yes, especially towards the end. I also craved ice. I would freeze bottled water, then my husband would crack it on our counter and I'd eat the little pieces inside, lol. It was horrible the night before my scheduled c-section because I wasn't allowed to have anything to eat or drink for 12 hours!

  • Yep...all I've been drinking the past week is glass after glass of ice water. With my last pregnancy, I craved lots and lots of ice...but I have an iron deficiency.

  • Not while I was pregnant, just OJ. When I breastfed it was all about the apple juice and ice water!

  • I was like that near the end. I drank at least a gallon of ice water a day. It was the most delicious thing to me! My iron and sugars were fine,so I don't know. Maybe I ate too much salt or something.

  • Oh yeah lol. When I was pregnant with my son we would drive by a fountain or pool and I had to stop and get a bottle of water if I didn't already have 1. I drank so much water I didn't keep tract. I guess it's a very normal thing. I also craved ice towards the last few months of my pregnancy and I hate ice!
