I'm almost 6 months preggers and lately I have been really thirsty. I've been drinking plain water and vitamin water around the clock and it never seems to be enough. Has anyone experienced this? Can I drink too much water??

Have you been tested for GD?  That can cause unusually high thirst.

I think hypothyroidism can also cause it. That being said, being pregnant in the heat of summer requires drinking a LOT of water!

Yes and I'm good! I'm thinking I am hydrated enough but my body is saying I'm not? Idk..

I will ask my doctor at the next appointment. Idk I may be well hydrated but my body is just saying different?

In the meantime, let me put another case of water in the refrigerator. ..

When I was pregnant with dd (7.5 months old now) I was CONSTANTLY thirsty....like, it was never good enough to drink a whole bottle of water and even with that, my tests all came back normal.
