  • I was too when I was pregnant. It's your body letting you know you need more fluid. You have to drink more when your pregnant. I went through so many gallons of milk like crazy lol. And ice, I loved ice.

  • your body needs a lot of supplementing while you are pregnant. Food and water! That growing baby is taking everything out ofyou. Same if you Breastfeed. I BF and I feel literally dehydrated when she starts nursing

  • make sure you take the glucose test when dr. tells you to check for diabetes. Just in case.
