Is it normal during your 3rd trimester to drink excessive amounts of water, more than 8 glasses a day?

I am almost 33 weeks pregnant and I can not seem to get enough liquids into my body.. I am constantly parched..I drink at least 10 tp 12 bottles of water a day if not more and i am still thirsty.. It even wakes me up at night..

  • If you are thirsty, drink. That's what my dr. says. Try cutting back a bit on salt in your diet.

  • Have you gone in for your glucose test yet? I would bring it up to your doctor, but it could just be your diet.
