    I have a cup of coffee (every other day), then probably drink 3 cups of water a day and 3 cups of juice at night...I know it's not enough, but I can't seem to drink more :(

    I try to get that much, but most days I don't. I've really tried to only drink water and not tea or anything else, but I still think I probably get around 4-5 cups a day.

    I have a glass of OJ and a coffee in the morning and then only water throughout the day. Usually about 6-8 pints.

    But what do they class as a 'cup'?

    I have a 75cl water bottle at work and I usually fill it up twice in my working day, then maybe a pint or two in an evening at home, not tons but it's some at least!

    no where near enough, I have about 2 or 3 glasses 4 at the up most. I never drank as much as I should and it's a really hard habit to break, I don't often feel thirsty hence the lack of liquids I drink.

    I have around 10-12 cups. Plus a glass of milk with dinner so about 2 cups of milk, and in the morning about 2 cups of coffee.

    No wonder I pee.

    I heard everything counts to your liquid intake so even tea or coffee you can add to the amount you're supposed to drink in a day. However water specifically I probably drink 3-4 glasses, the rest is tea.

    I hardly drink any water, I just can't stomach it. :shrug: I drink a fair bit of cloudy lemonade (it's an addiction!), a few cups of decaf coffee, but hardly any water by itself.

    Pretty sure I drink enough to float a boat. I'm SO thirsty all the time. At least 7-8 20oz bottles a day, sometimes more.

    Bossman bought me 32 oz tumblers to use at work. I try to drink 2-4 at least during the work day. Then 2 cups or so after work at home and a water bottle over night.

    I drink 9-15 glasses. I have one cup of coffee in the morning and sometimes one in the afternoon. I have a water bottle at work that I just sip on and fill up when I go to the restroom.

    I used to be a soda addict but since getting pregnant, they leave a terrible after taste in my mouth so I don't enjoy them anymore. I also try to drink a glass of orange juice a day since it is getting to be cold/flu season :)

    Prepregnant my body weight divided by two left me the ounces I needed before getting pregnant, it translates to 7 cups. Now, I drink 8 cups of water per day in addition to milk.
