  • Increased thirst, weight gain (more then a normal pregnancy). They test every women for this during pregnancy, so they should let you know if you have it.

  • oh DUH..sry
    Rarely, gestational diabetes may cause excessive thirst or increased urination. For most women, however, gestational diabetes doesn't cause noticeable signs or symptoms.
