is it normal to be so thirsty all the time? I feel like I could just drink the ocean dry sometimes.
Also, yesterday and today, my hair seems like I didn't even wash it at all (I wash my hair every morning-twice) looks very oily and flat. Anyone else experiencing these things?

Re: thirsty

I've been drinking 60oz a day, something I never did before, and I'm still constantly thirsty. Now I just keep a water bottle with me and if i'm thirsty, I drink.

I dont know about the oily hair though, my hair is always very dry. If anything it seems more dry now.

Re: thirsty

I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and I feel like everyone else, like I can drinks gallons of water a day, but I know if I do I will be constantly going to the bathroom. Not to mention I went do an ultrasound today and one of the babies is right up against my bladder. And about the greasy hair thing, I noticed that right at the beginning of my pregnancy the shampoo I used before made my hair very greasy since I was pregnant. I switched shampoo and I have not had that problem since. Hope I helped.

Re: thirsty

I'm definitely more thirsty. But I am definitley not drinking the recommended 60+ ounces a day like I should. I try to get 40oz a day. I do notice though that if I Don't drink enough during the day then I am really really thirsty every time I wake up in the night. And my throat will hurt really badly because of it. And thats no fun at all. By the way, I am 20wks.

Re: thirsty

By the way, anyone feel like the more water they drink then the thirstier they are? I have been sitting here drinking a cold glass of water. I wasn't really thirsty to begin with but the more I drink it the thirstier I am becoming! That seems to happen alot.
