    I drink constantly... and pay for it every night when I'm up every hour to go to the washroom - just make sure you're drinking water and not trying to quench w/ sugar drinks! :D

    it can be a sign of diabetes but from what I've read it's common during pregnancy - if you're concerned doc can do a blood test - but if your only symptom is being thirsty... I wouldn't be worried :)

    Yep - I drink all the time too. Have been off tea and hot drinks almost since the beginning, so am mostly drinking water. I think it's just the body making sure baby gets enough fluid, I think think it's anything to worry about.

    I go through at least two big bottles of mineral waters a day, sometimes more, plus some fruit juice in the morning.

    I'll have my glucose tolerance test on Monday - hope it'll be ok.

    I am a drinking machine these days but it is because we are hot and we need to keep hydrated because we keep weeing ALL THE TIME :rofl: and also dehydration can cause premature labour and we don't want that. I had my wee tested for glucose 3 weeks ago and there was none so I wouldn't worry unless you are drinking more than 3 litres or so :hugs:
