Pregnancy makes you feel thirsty and you may have the sensation of having a dry mouth and throat. Even though you may just have drunk a sip of water, your mouth and throat may still feel dry.
It’s a fine balancing act of drinking enough and not having to pee every 15 minutes! Your bladder is much smaller and sensitive, yet you have such a dry mouth and need to drink.
The sensation of having a dry mouth and throat is medically termed as Xerostomia. This medical condition can also lead to problems with oral hygiene – see Gums.
