I just kept a bottle of water next to my bed, so every time I got up to pee and I drink some water before falling back to sleep. Also its good to drink lots of water, especially in the last trimester. Dehydration can trigger contractions and preterm labor.

It tapered off during the second trimester, and now (at 34 weeks) I'm very thirsty again. I am a bit concerned that it's a possible sign of GD, so I've been very careful about not eating the sweets. We should all be eating that way during pregnancy anyway, whether we're diagnosed with GD or not. It's best for us and baby. Easier said than done though! :)
