I'm SO thirsty!

I haven't hardly had any cravings but I am always thirsty. I guess I can say I have craved lots of OJ and Apple Juice too. And then there are times where I can drink a whole large bottle of Smart Water.....anyone ever experience this?
I had my gest. diab test and they said everything is fine so I'm not worried about that.

  • I would suggest you try to quench your thirst with good old fashion plain water...the other drinks are fine...but you should primarily drink water to keep from dehydrating. I dehydrate very easy when I'm oregnant...I have to have a bottle of water w/ me at all times.

  • It's normal during pregnancy. You need more fluids when you're pregnant, and that's your body's way of letting you know. With my first, I would go to work with a 2-liter bottle of water (and sometimes some Crystal Light drink mix), and people looked at me so funny at first, but most days I'd drink the whole thing and then some, and that didn't include what I drank at home.

  • I would stick to water. One month during my pregnancy, I went crazy drinking juice and gained a ton of weight. My Doc. yelled at me for it.
