Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that this is not uncommon in the first trimester of pregnancy. I might be tempted to check a blood glucose level (if you have any personal or family history that puts you at risk for diabetes) but otherwise, I would just advise you to keep a water bottle handy and stay close to the ladies' room! Good luck! Dr B
Yes it is normal I am constantly thirsty i am 28weeks now, I think it's a mixture of change in body temperature, more frequent urinating and foetus needing fluid for growth and amniotic fluid. I would still ask doctors or midwife though just in case
Im very thirty too. And even lip skin breaking (7/8) weeks but my issue is i cant stand water :( unless im eating something and vomiting acid just started on week 5 (iiuk). Wish could drink a lot like u girls
Are you avoiding caffeine? Too much is not recommended during pregnancy, anyway, but it can also cause dehydration. Otherwise, you're fine. If you hate water, like I do, stock up on some water flavorings, like Mio or the ones from Crystal Light.
im sooooo thirsty all the time.. i got off of bc a month ago and its 6 days until i am supposed to start..i also am very tired and bloated, i feel like a whale.. I dont know if this is normal or if im overreacting or what....anyone else have these issues when they were pregnant?
