Do you drink fluids before bed to stay hydrated?

Bignuf Bignuf
Big question at Friday night dinner group. Some people seem to drink a fair bit before bed, to "stay hydrated" (not wake up with dry mouth, dry throat..etc). Others avoid fluid like the plague before bed, so they don't have to get up and urinate during the night!

What do you do about "fluids before bed"?

I'll maybe drink a sip or two if I'm thirsty, but if I drink right before bed that means I'm going to get up and have to pee. I already have to get up once or twice a night anyways so I would hate to make myself need to do it even more.

I try to avoid it for a few hours before bed, because I certainly will wake up for a restroom break in the middle of the night!

I try to drink lots (and lots) of fluids during the day though, so it's all good.

I only drink something before bed if I'm thirsty. I don't do it to stay hydrated, but I try not to drink too much so that I don't have to get up in the middle of the night to pee.

I try to remember to drink it. I take one with me to bed but always forget to drink.

I always have a drink before bed. Sometimes more than one glass of water, in fact, but I still wake up with a very dry mouth.

I try to stay hydrated throughout the day and take some water before bed.

I drink before bed if I'm thirsty & keep something available on the nightstand, but I don't do it to prevent anything, nor do I care about having to urinate at night.

I don't usually have to awaken in the night to urinate & can usually wait till morning, but if I normally had to go several times a night, I'd be very ticked off & not drink before bed.

Sometimes I drink water before bed so I'll be sure to wake up on time (because I have to pee)!

I drink whenever I feel like it, which is often just before bed.

I drink if I'm thirsty (not too often), but I always sleep with a glass of water next to the bed. It never fails, when I don't have a glass next to me, I wake up thirstier than hell.

I always keep a glass of water by my bed, and usually by morning I've drunk the whole thing.

I don't worry about it. My bladder is overactive enough as it is.

I'll drink water when I am thirsty, but if I drink anything too close to bedtime, I can't make it through the night without getting up to go to the bathroom.

I don't drink anything for a couple hours before bed, or I would probably pee 6 times that night. lol.
