Thirsty Anyone

I am so thirsty all the time! I can't stop drinking water, and I know this is good for me but then I can't stop peeing! Is anyone else going through this? I am at the end of my first trimester....11.5 weeks today (3/16)

Missy, my wife is constantly thirsty and pees a lot too. It's to be expected, though when you're about 24+ weeks it would be a good idea to have a glucose tolerance test. My wife is having it done on Monday, because sometimes gestational diabetes has increased thirst and increased urination as symptoms. Don't worry though because you can get these symptoms regardless.

Yep. I'm at 9 weeks and I'm always thirsty. Water doesn't cut it some days but a huge gla__s of pink lemondae really quenches my thirst. With lots of sugar! Yummm!!!!! I don't have the peeing problem yet. My uterus must not be pushing on my bladder very much.

It feels like that is all I do, is drink and pee. Although it has gotten better during the second trimester.

I drink well over 8 pints of water throughout the day. I also have to go potty 1 or 2 x per hour. Drinking all this water is really great, it can help keep swelling at a minimum and help prevent strech marks, along with many other benefits :)

Yep, I'm in the same boat. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and go thru a gallon of water a day. No joke! I think I spend more than 1/2 my day in the bathroom.

I wake up every 2-3 hours in the middle of the night, I get so thirsty. I'm in the military, and have a history of dehydration, so I've always consumed a lot of water, but I thought it was a bit crazy that I could get dehydrated overnight. I asked my mommy (the source of all knowledge!) and she told me that it's normal, and to keep drinking water as often as I felt I needed to. She also told me that if she didn't drink water while b___stfeeding, she wouldn't produce enough milk. So...her final words of wisdom to me on the subject were: drink water, and buy a comfortable toilet seat.

I am 36 weeks pregnant and I have become constantly thirsty. I can't go more than 1hr without a tall gla__s of water or Gatorade.
