Usually around 4 hours but if I don't get all my water in for the day I try and drink a bottle of water right before bed. I don't get home from my second job until 9:30 so I'll drink it real fast and then hit the hay. I'm fortunate because I don't have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

I need to stop at least 3-4 hours before bed and really can't drink alot 5-6 hours before. It drives me crazy, some nights I'm up 2-3 times and wake before the alarm because I need to go again.

I don't have a set time when I stop, it doesn't seem to be a problem with me. I often have half a cup of orange juice pretty shortly before bed, since my doctor told me to take my iron supplements with orange juice.

I try not to drink after 7pm - so about 4 hrs

I used to take water to bed with me, and I'd often wake up thirsty.

I can't do that anymore. Since I went through the 3rd birth something changed. I was getting up every hour or two to go pee at night. That's very little sleep time!

Now I make sure I get 8 or more cups into the daytime, and the last cup I have is at dinnertime. No more drinks after about 6.30pm. I've tried taking just a drink or two after that time and it wakes me up...the urge to go.

Which is okay by me, I'm not as thirsty as I used to get.

I don't have a certain cut-off time, because no matter how much (of little) water I drink - I still awaken every morning between 5 & 5:30 because I have to use the bathroom.

Hehe. Sometimes I wake up in the night time to drink water. : ) But I have always drunk like a fish my whole life. I don't really mind getting up to go to the bathroom (IMO). Maybe because I am used to doing it?

I drink throughout the day and have water on the bedside table -- no problems with nighttime bathroom trips.

I fill up my water bottles first thing in the morning as I wait for the coffee to brew.

One bottle before lunch, the other before dinner. Usually I'm done drinking anything about 2 hrs before so I don't have any nightly trips to the RR

I try to stop an hour before going to bed, but that doesn't always happen. Sometimes I have to get up in the middle of the night, but most of the time I can wait until morning.

I should be use to how much water I drink but I still have to take many potty breaks through the night- I don't mind though. Like someone said before I go right back to sleep!

I drink more during the day than I do after dinner - but I always have a glass of water nearby.

I drink up until my head hits the pillow... I always have a glass of water by my bed. But of course that means getting up to pee in the night, lol! ;)

I usually drink a glass of water right before bed. I get up to go to the bathroom during the night, but I can usually go back right back to sleep.

I drink until bedtime. I've been known to drink two glasses of squash right before bed because I realised I hadn't drunk enough during the day. =P

I drink my bulk in the afternoon and slow down at night. No more than one bottle after dinner. Other than that I am up all night.

I drink up to the light gets turned off. Sometimes I regret that when I have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, but usually it's not bad.

I have pills that I have to take at bedtime so I finish off whatever I'm drinking then, which is usually water.

I drink liquids right until bedtime. It's not an issue for me. Occasionally, I have to get up to go to the bathroom, but I go right back to sleep.

In general if you are well hydrated that ceases to be a problem, but at any rate, I personally would never NOT drink if I felt thirsty.

I'm trying to get in more liquids but I'm having go potty all the time so I'm wondering what everyone else's experience has been. If you stop before bed, how many hours... or if you just keep drinking and get up in the middle of the night etc....Maybe you just get used to it and no longer have to go all the time?
