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.

  • this might sound really weird but i was so thirsty when i was pregnant that i had to always carry water with me because one time my hubby and i were in walmart and i was so thirsty that he had to run and get me something to drink and come back because i was seriously CRAVING the Mr Clean that was in my buggy....it was liquidy and a pretty color and to me it looked like it would curb my thirst ....there was nothing wrong with me except i needed water!

  • 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.
