Fluid intake in final trimester

I am 38+1. In the last few days I seem to have needed to drink more to keep my wee a normal colour.

I had a GTT test at 29 wks and it was fine.

I am not thirsty, or even specially hungry. Not swollen, no fluid retention, no headaches.

Can't get hold of my MW.

I am just assuming that at this stage the baby needs loads of fluid, i need loads of blood and that's where the demand is coming from.

Is this normal.

hiya i am currently 37 weeks and have been drinking loads, about 2.5litres of water a day and my wee is still really dark. I'm weeing lots but only little bits, think it is def the baby using up all the extra fluid. Being checked by midwife twice a week due to complications in previous pregnancy and she hasn't picked up any problems so i would think it's nothing to worry about. Just drink as much fluid as you can manage!!! x
