I found out on Monday that I'm five weeks pregnant. Besides nausea each morning, sore boobies and a headache the only other symptoms have is insatiable thirst... is this normal? What can I do about it? Thank you in advance!
I have this when I'm pregnant, you just have to drink plenty although I do find some drinks more thirst quenching than others for example v ice old sparkling water with some lemon slices in or weak squash rather than just plain water. I'm 18 weeks and easily drinking over 3 litres a day which makes for a lot of bathroom trips but you just get used to it!
Completely normal. Someone said to me it was to do with your body trying to dilute the hormones a bit too. I found that if I didn't drink enough, I would feel like utter crap and sometimes I'd start feeling unwell but a large glass of water or squash would make me feel better. Good luck
I'm 8+1 and exactly the same - just can't get enough water at the minute! Like @haveacupoftea said, I've read it's your bodies way of getting extra fluids to make the extra blood we both need! Congrats!
