Should you drink water when TTC? - January 22

I am one of those incredibly lazy people when it comes to drinking water. I just can't get myself to drink more than 1 glass of water per day. I know this is terrible, but I just hate drinking water. My total fluid consuption per day is 2 coffees, 1 tea, 1 water, 1 diet coke. That's it. Do you think this could be a reason why I'm not able to fall pregnant? TTC for a long time. Is water important at all?

Yes it is, if you look up on any seach engine for tips on trying to conceive the first thing they say is stop the caffeine, you are consuming 4 out 5 drinks that are loaded with caffeine. I am in the same boat, I am going to start ttc again next month. I have stopped my caffeine intake. I was having 3 cups of coffee and soda all day long. I now have 1 cup in the morning before work. OJ with breakfast (vit c is very important when trying) and water or seltzer through out the day. Good Luck!

My sister is going to school to be a nurse. Her professor explained the effects of caffeine and cigarettes on implantation as if trying to throw a fast ball an expecting it to stick somewhere. The caffeine and nicotine get your adrenaline going, I guess making the egg move a bit faster, therefore making it harder to implant. Not sure how much truth is to that but it makes sense.
