    Default Drinking water during pregnancy... Alan?

    This is going to sound sooooo dumb... but is there such a thing as drinking too much water during pregnancy? Just wodnering, as I have been guzzling it down... not keeping track of how much I'm drinking really, but I'm so thristy I'm sure I get close if not go over the 2L mark... It's all I'm drinking apart from hot chocolate in the morning and sometimes before bed or the occassional lemonade.

    So, I know water is great, but is there such a thing as drinking too much? Should I be monitoring how much I'm drinking? I'm so thirsty all the time, I've never drunk this much water in my life lol. Is that a bad sign, or just a pregnant thing?

    Hi Leasha
    I usually reccomend that you drink between 2 and 3 litres a day. I noticed that you say you are so thirsty. Excessive thirst is a sign of diabetes so it may be a good idea to get your blood sugar checked when you next see your Midwife.

    I've always drunk a lot of water but I've had periods of drinking HEAPS and always being thirsty too. Just go with it I guess. It can be a sign of GD- but surely not so early in your pregnancy? I've had my GD test and all is well so I guess sometimes you just need loads of water.
