  • Sorry Sweetie.. I don't know what to tell you. I had to make an effort to drink because I am not very good at staying hydrated. How much salt are you taking in? Maybe you need to avoid salty snacks?

  • its all part of the joys of pregnancy! staying hydrated is necessary for you an baby so you have to keep drinking! apple juice works really well to quench my thirst. milk and sodas (soda you should avoid anyway) dosnt really thirst quench that good so water and fruit juices are the best. i find that mouth is dry ALOT so i make sure to always have popsicles and frozen fruit bars on hand. and like jambo4 said, try limiting alot of salty snacks...good luck!

  • have you gotten tested for diabetes yet? It can randomly come up during pregnancy and this sounds like it. do you find yourself light headed a lot when you stand? If you don't have it, have you tried drinking aloe juice? That may help.

  • Avoid salty foods. That sounds like you are taking in too much salt. Just read all labels....keep the total daily sodium intake to under 1200 mg a day. And drink water.

  • I would call your doctor and tell them. Unsatisfied thirst is a major flag for diabetes. Why won't they test you now? I would ask again and maybe even call for a second opinion. Good luck.
