I'm 24 weeks pregnant and recently went to the hospital because I was in pain. After some hours they told me it was due to dehydration. That came as no surprise because I know I should drink more water than I do. The thing is the nurse gave me instructions to rest more and drink 7-8 32 oz (2 gallons) everyday. I found it a little extreme, and frankly so far for me physically impossible. I've talked to like 4 other people about it and they say that it's ridiculous and strange. Do I keep attempting to down all this water, listening to the hospital or do I drink according to what my body is telling me to? Just curious to know what others opinions are, and if anyone else has been told to drink this much water.
