Why Drinking Water is Bad for the Environment

So, I've been trying to be good about my water intake since I've been pregnant. I was recently given a great 32oz Nalgene bottle from a colleague who went to a vendor conference, and I am using it to measure my water intake and to remind me to drink at least 32oz a day, preferrable 64oz.

Well, my conclusion - as a pregnant person, I am single handedly helping to destroy the environment, because I pee so much! I am constantly running to the bathroom - I counted no less than 10 times today. Just thinking about the amount of water it takes to flush a toilet, that's a lot of water...I may be doing good for the new baby, but this can't be good for the environment!
