  • I've had this with all 3 of my pregnancies and it drives me nuts as well. I feel like I am trapped on a deserted island and it's 100 degrees outside! Then I suck down all of this water and feel completely bloated and like I am going to throw up lol

  • Excessive thirst is an indicator of high blood sugar, lay off all of the sweets & simple starches for a week, you'll feel soooo much better. :)

  • I am always thirsty...I am 27 weeks...and I have gestational is a sign...I agree, watch your intake of pure sugar....cakes cookies, carbonated might help..

  • I'm in my 29th week and I have days like that. I'll drink a gatorade and it seems to help me.

  • I felt that way and had really bad heartburn so I was always drinking milk! I went through 6 gallons a week
