...I have such a dry mouth all the time - esp at night, and first thing in the morning when my wee is dark brown. I drink a bit during the night (doesn't help sleep with trips to the loo) and drink loads when I get up and it's soon back to normal (ie - light). Saw midwife today and she wasn't bothered as she did the usual urine test and said everything was fine. But even though I drink (and wee!) loads, I'm still thirsty a lot. Is this normal and just another late pg symptom that people don't talk about? Anyone else? Any ideas? Had 2 tests for gestational diabetes at 20 and 28 weeks - both negative. Just want this baby out now!!!

Hi OP I'm 28 weeks and just said to DH earlier that I never remember being this dry in all my life! By the time I got to the supermarket check out yesterday I handed over a can of juice and a pint of skimmed milk...both empty! blush

I had this. I took 2 litres of water with me wherever I went and drank upwards of 2 litres of milk a day. Me and DS are both healthy.

I have an unquenchable thirst. It's part dry mouth, part craving for the sensation if drinking cold stuff - the more ice the better!

Had a GTT Tuesday - no problems.

I'm on my third pint of the night and one hundred and third wee

Ooh glad I found this thread I am 37 weeks with unquenchable thirst and an unhealthy obsession with Capri sun! Sounds like another pregnancy joy!

34 weeks here and also thirsty ALL. THE. TIME.

I'm actually having a GTT the week after next although I'm sure it will be negative - I've only had a +1 glucose twice and am not overweight and not an extra big baby.

think it's just a typical pregnancy thing to be thirsty. drinking for 2!

Bit different but with breast feeding my daughter I became unbelievably and constantly thirsty, so I assumed it was a hormonal baby related 'thing'
