Water craving

Last night I suddenly started craving water. All I've wanted all day is water..It's weird because I HATE water but now I can't get enough of it.
Now, my question is, is it true that a sudden craving of water is a sign of diabetes? Or is it just another craving? I'm going to call my doctor and ask her but I wanted to see if anybody knew. I can't remember where I heard that it was a sign of GD.
I had my diabetes check at 26 weeks and they haven't said anything about it so I'm guessing it came back normal. I'm 29 weeks now.

  • I'm not sure if it's a sign of diabetes or not. I would call the doc. In the beginning of my pregnancy I craved water too, but after I drank it, I'd throw up - LOL. The baby just couldn't make up her mind what she wanted - hehe.

  • could be your body telling you that you're dehydrated. as far as I recall one of the signs of diabetes is being super thirsty.

  • During my first trimester I was thirsty all the time. no diabetes or anything just trying to make up the fluids my body was constantly burning through
