How pg are you? Are you having the glucose intolerance tests? Im 31wks and have gestational diabetes atm.

I am 13 weeks at the moment, i am having a random test next week. But due to my age and pre pregnancy weight i am apparently in a higher risk category.

at 13 weeks it's unlikely to be gestational diabetes. i have never heard of migraines being a symptom, but extreme thirst is. did the dr do a random glucose test? if you look at the diabetes uk website there's lots of stuff there.

i have pre-exisiting diabetes, & am also pregnant. it's a pain in the arse but totally livable with. hope you find out soon.
