    Hi all, is it normal to feel really hungry and thirsty all the time. I am constantly hungry and no matter how much i drink i need more...
    I drink loads and my mouth is always dead dry like i havent drank anything for a few days.

    I'm not sure hun, I'm the total opposite. Do not feel hungry in the slightest but I'll still clear my plate if it's put in front of me.

    If it was left to me, I wouldn't have eaten or drank a thing in the last few weeks :blush: Only reason I do is I keep on reminding myself it's for baby, not for me!

    I heard that being constantly thirsty can be a sign of gest diabeties.
    I remember being the opposite with my daughter towards the end.

    Good luck for the test, why did they send you for it? is it to do with BMI or just from urine samples? I'm a bit concerned about it now...x

    I've been real thirsty too. My urine test at 24 weeks was ok but my one at 27 weeks had sugars. Then I had blood test which also showed high sugars.

    I have more tests on Tuesday for gestational diabetes.
    Fingers crossed it'll be ok.

    PS I also have PCOS.

    Hope everything is ok for you.
