You should drink when thirsty with the majority of your fluid coming from water and your urine should be pale and not concentrated.
Drinking more than you need long term can actually have some ill effects on the kidneys

I find it really hard to drink enough! It depends on the day but usually around 1L. Which really should be tripled right now as I'm almost 32 weeks pregnant! I'm trying!! I just don't feel thirsty and when I do drink it, all it does it make me pee constantly. I know I need to though, also because I get bad leg cramps and DH is always saying it's because I don't drink enough water.

At least 2L easily. Its all I drink, apart from some milk at breakfast.

I am a sahm and usually would just have a half a cup of water every time I went into the kitchen before I was pregnant.
I've been trying to drink more since I am pregnant, but some days I don't drink a lot. It makes me nauseas and I'm in the third tri now. It also just goes right through me. I've also noticed it's made no difference to the mild swelling I get in my feet even if I chug a lot of water.
Ive read up a lot and agree with pp that this push for us to drink litres a day is kinda silly. Fluid intake is meant to be all fluids you drink in a day, not just water.
If some people need to drink a lot of water that's fine but some people get by fine on less. I've made a point to try finish a 600ml bottle of water a day, then on top of that I probably have a cup of tea, a cup of coffee (both decaf) a cup of milk and at least one cup of herbal tea.
I never drink juice or soft drink.

I drink too much, around 10 large glasses a day and then there's Pepsi max that I have a little of and also 2 or so coffees, sometimes a frappe or Boost.. Drinking is most of my intake, I don't really eat during the day. Crappy habits!

I think I drink to much water it's all I drink all day and all night I'm forever in the toilet.
I have 1 coffee 1 tea per day and no soft drink but am loving orange juice at the moment so might have 1 orange juice here and there.?

An adult should drink a minimum of 30ml per kilo they weigh.
I don't drink coffee or anything though so find at work I drink about 3-4L of water. At home probably around 2.5/3L.

3 litres. I would feel blah without it. I don't have much soft drink at all and maybe 2 cups of tea. I drink more water when pregnant.
