34 weeks & suddenly thirsty all the time?


I'm 34 weeks pregnant and the last week or so I seem to be thirsty all the time. From the minute I wake up (if I've even managed to sleep) I constantly feel like I need to drink yet I never feel like my thirst is quenched. It's getting to the point now where I'm actually waking up to drink 3 maybe even 4 times a night.

Just wondered if anyone else is experiencing anything similar and/or if it's something I should mention to my MW. I've got a growth scan scheduled for the 22nd so I'm not seeing my MW until the 28th when I'll be 37 weeks?

It can be a sign of having gestational diabetes.

I had the same thing. Like others have said can be GD.

Are you taking Gaviscon etc?. Midwife said that's what was causing me to be thirsty all the time xx

I had this same thing kick in a few weeks earlier than that - maybe around 30, 32 weeks? I did mention it at the doctor but she wasn't concerned and said it was normal. I'd still mention it at your next appt just to be safe
