Your symptoms suggest that your likely cause for increased urination may be high sugars. So get your sugars tested, control them if high. however it is a good idea to do a urine examination and a blood urea and creatinine, as early kidney disease can also cause increased urination.
It is normal for whatever water you drink to pass in the urine, that's how kidneys maintain the XXXXXXX fluid balance.

Don't worry it may be just because of excess water intake also. So just wait for the tests before assuming something.

Post Meal 3hrs, a sugar of 114 is normal.
Get your Urine routine and microscopy, a blood urea and creatinine done.
Keep a record of your daily intake and output.
Make sure you are not taking too much of water around meals.
