Is being dehydrated a sign of me loosing my amniotic fluid

My lips and skin have been so dry even my hair for about the past week, I was wondering if  this could be a sign of me possibly loosing my amniotic fluid?

  • Nope. Just a sign that you are pregnant! DD sucked me dry. My skin was dry, my hair got brittle and I was constantly thirsty! I was drinking water like it was going out of style!!

    how ever changes to your skin and hair are normal in pregnancy and may have nothing to do with dehydration
