Extreme thirst?

For the past few days I have been drinking between 85-110oz of water daily. Everytime I drink a bottle about 5mins later my mouth is completely dry again and feels like I havent drank anything in a week! I am 8dpo did anyone else experience this early on in their pregnancy?

  • I am never ever ever thirsty but drinking that much is good for you. I know a lot of Moms goal is around 100 or more. I wouldn't worry too much.

  • I would make sure that your Doctor checks your sugar levels to see if you have gestational diabetes...

  • I would talk to your doctor b/c that does seem very extreme. Have him/her check sugar levels and blood pressure...
