I am 23 weeks pregnant and constantly thirsty - especially when at work. Could I have diabetes?

I had the same problem too. It's just that your baby needs extra water. Try to keep several bottles of water refilled in the refrigerator that way you can always have water with you. I always take one in the car, to work, to bed, etc. I believe that you will be tested for gestional diabetes around 28 weeks, but I'm not completely sure on the time frame. Call your doctor if you are unsure.

Tanya is right about the time frame, however if you are in a high risk group they will test earlier. Since you are 23 weeks already, it sounds as if your doctor didn't think you were a high risk.
