I have found that over the last two days, I am really thirsty all the time. If I don't drink water regularly I am getting a dry mouth/throat. Has any of you experienced this in the early stages - and is it anything to be worried about?
I had that quite a bit during my first few weeks of pregnancy, no matter what I drank, it never seemed to quench my thirst. I was constantly thirsty and dry. I don't think there's anything to worry about, just make sure you keep drinking water to keep you hydrated.
spooky poppy i was just gonna add a thread on this i cannot stop drinking i am drinking 500ml bottles at a time i have gone off tea coffee but i am drinking gallons of juice i even take a bottle to bed with me cause i wake up thirsty
It is totally normal. Your body is beginning to produce load of extra blood for you and for the baby, and it needs fluid to do so. Water also helps the baby, and is important for the amniotic fluid. My midwife has told me to drink an INSANE amount of water, and I do the best I can. It also helps with constipation, digestion and loads of other stuff. So drink up girlies!!!
ooh i have found this since starting week 9! I had to get a bottle of Evian water at the petrol station coz i was gasping for it!! And now iv bought 8 bottles of the big sports ones so i can walk around with a bottle at all times (even in the house) becuase its so easy to drink!! I used to drink LOADS of cups of tea but not had one in about 4 weeks!! Ice cold water is great...i cant get enough of it at the moment!
