i'd talk to your doctor.It's normal to yak everything up when your pregnant but if your lips are getting chapped bad then i'd say you need fluids. Just keep on chuggin' that water I guess.

I am too having a hard time drinking enough fluids.......but my Dr said I have to (atleast try to sip 1 gla__s of water every hr) he said as I go farther along the baby would need this.....So Im trying my best to drink enough water/fluids for my baby girl. ;o)

another reason to try and drink fluids is because you need water to go #2 properly. Not enough fluids can cause constipation, which can lead to hemmroids !!!! woohoo

An easy way to tell if you're properly hydrated is the color of your urine. If it's dark yellow, you're dehydrated. If it's clear, you're probably overhydrated. It should be pale yellow, almost but not quite completely clear. Headaches are one of the first symptoms of dehydration.
