  • Because you need to drink more water. The best thing a pregnant woman can do is LISTEN TO HER BODY (any woman really). If you're thirsty, drink. If you're hungry, eat. If you're craving something (outside of sweets), then you should probably give into it; your body craves what it needs and whatever your craving has something in it that you need.

  • You are probably eating salty foods. That'll do it! lol

  • Have your blood sugars checked yet? Just be sure it's not gestational diabetes (think the glucose test is at 28 weeks). Being thirsty constantly is one of the symptoms. But it could be just from foods or hormones only too.

  • Being pregnant in the summer makes you thirsty. It's best to drink only water.

  • You are letting yourself get dehydrated. Being pregnant in the summer is rough. I had my first in August. You need to drink more water and cut down on your sodium intake.
