Yes! I am 27 weeks with my first and last week I drank so much I thought I was going to float away. 6 gallons in 3 days! I went to the Dr and gained 10 pounds and was freaking out. The Dr said my body was making more blood and keep drinking - the more the better. I have never drank so much fluid in my life but I think of it like this: at least this weight is fluid and not FAT! The thirst went away after a few days but I was scared too. I thought maybe my body was freaking out or my kidneys were messed up but I am just preggo! Also, I was surprised at how much I was drinking but not peeing as much as I should have. I should have been on the toilet all day but no. Your body needs it I guess.

I wake up every morning about to thirst to death! I guess our blood volume increases so much while we are pregnant, maybe that is natures way to keep from getting dehydrated. I mean it takes more fluid than usual to build up and keep that blood volume in our bodies.

thanks TM,, my only problem is that i dont like water that much,, i prefer juice and those stuff.. but when i think about my baby i feel that driking a cup of juice everytime instead of water isnt that healthy for her so i have to force myself to drink water which annoys me especially the frequent visits to the toilet during work (ugh!!) :p
