    Waking up dehydrated? Why?

    Why do I always dehydrated and tired?  I guess I am tired because of the dehydration ... But, since I am pregnant I do not drink coffee, nor alcohol, I sleep with the window open, so in a cool room, I drink at least 12 glasses of water a day (also a big one before going to bed), I drink whenever I wake up and I do not have diabetes ... ??  It seems to have gotten worse during the pregnancy - but throughout the day I suffer from this, headaches, sore eyes, always a dry throat

    Maybe you should replace some of the water with a good fruit juice or decaf tea. Water is not always the healthiest of things, being full of chemicals where they take sewer water and turn it back into drinking water and I have read what you buy in stores is no different, so I boil all my water and make ice tea and add apple cider or cherry juice, sometimes I make celery and carrot juice in a blender with other juices or cider. Lot of healthy benefits this way and worth a try. I never drink water and I rarely get dehydrated. If I do it is usually from a medicine I take.

    I think this question would best be answered by your physician.  It sounds like you're drinking a healthy amount.  Have you discussed your symptoms with your OB?  This is a medical professional related question.  I hope you can find out soon and start to feel better.

    Doctors are not infallible and I find many have no time or knowledge so I think an online search could be beneficial too, as I do with every new prescription I get to find out what the doctor failed to tell me. I heard years ago doctors were being forced into holistic and natural medicines but I have seen no sign of it and they are much like the government to lean towards what lines their pockets, prescribing certain medicines with at least some sort of kick-back or why else would you see these people with their little briefcases in their office being allowed straight in every time you have an appointment? So yes, ask your doctor but get a second opinion not doctor related and you may not have to take a chemical for dehydration!
