  • Your blood volume as well as other fluid volumes increase greatly during pregnancy, so yes, you can definitely feel thirsty. Be sure you are getting enough non-caffeinated fluids during the day.

  • oh yes its very normal! drink more than 3 large glasses of water. I know it does not help the potty situation, but increase your water intake!

  • I was hella thirsty too. Drinking more water at that time is necessary. Also it'll help with the swelling!

  • Yes it's normal. I used to take a 2-liter bottle of water to work and drink it all (and then some). And that was just at work, not including what I drank at home.
