Not drinking enough water

Although there are many recommendations available about how much water people should drink, needs vary from person to person. Pregnancy places additional demands on the body. So women generally need to drink more water during pregnancy than they did before they were pregnant.
Someone who is physically active or who lives in a hot climate will sweat more and will need more water.
Individuals who change their activity level suddenly or move to a warmer climate may need more water than they once did. If they do not adjust the amount they drink, they can become dehydrated.
People with eating disorders, particularly bulimia, may be more vulnerable to dehydration.
When dehydration happens because of not drinking enough water, it is often easy to fix by just drinking more water — particularly in the early stages of dehydration.
Not absorbing enough water
Some medical conditions, especially those that cause vomiting and diarrhea, can make it difficult for the body to absorb the water it needs.
Nausea and vomiting are more common during pregnancy than at other times. Those with hyperemesis gravidarum, which occurs in 3 percent of pregnancies, may experience intense vomiting that causes weight loss and dehydration.
Other health issues, especially those that affect metabolism, can cause dehydration. These include:
  • kidney failure
  • certain rare metabolic disorders
  • intestinal disorders such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease that make it difficult to absorb nutrients
People with an underlying medical condition are at an increased risk for dehydration in hot weather, following intense exercise, or when they do not drink enough water.

My advise
1...  During your pregnancy your child body needs more water to develop brain, heart, kidney cells  due to the demand of your child you will feel thirst
2..   During your your pregnancy you need to protect your body as well as your child's body
3...  Drink sufficient water
