Anyone ever had excessive thirst in pregnancy?
I am so thirsty it's driving me crazy! All the time if I go more than 10 minutes without drinking I feel like I haven't had water in 3 days. All night long I dream about drinking water. It's not like I don't get enough water I drink 8 to 16 oz an hour so why am I so thirsty????

This is a new one that I haven't had with my previous two children. Oh and I'm only 9 weeks.

I had that with this pregnancy...well more in the beginning than anything. I could just keep drinking water with lemon like there was no tomorrow!  Now, I'm just about 24 weeks and I have to force it down. Today was a baaaaad day for me. (trying to make up for it now) haha I will be up all night running to the bathroom.

That's funny the worst part is that if you drink all the time you have to pee 3 times an hour.

I'm not diabetic well as far as I know. If that was the case I would also have swelling right?

You might not have swelling. But I would try to stick to water instead of the other drinks mentioned. I've been monitored my whole pregnancy for gestational diabeties and just now got it. I've been thirsty the whole time. Now that I have the GD, I can only drink water or the crystal light type of drinks. No juice, soda, milk, caffinated tea, and so on.

If you're thirsty, just keep drinking that water! I have been that way my whole pregnancy, but I am thirsty person to begin with.
