  • I've heard that when a person is thirsty it's because they are dehydrated and need water...either way keep drinking that water! you'll need more since you are preg anyways.

  • lol ...hey it's definitly good for you. However, i would just let the doctor know because gestational diab.causes you to drink ALOT... Im sure ur prolly fine. I drink about 70oz a day or try to..not too much but a little water never hurt. It keeps you from over eating.

  • i have been so thirsty and i read in my pregnancy book by sheila kirtzinger to just always drink to thirst. i drink a lot but still feel thirsty.

  • Drink, drink, drink!!! Drink until your pee is clear. If you are still thirsty after your pee is clear, then you may have gestational diabetes and need to discuss this with your midwife or ob. Good Luck and drink up.
