I wouldnt think so, I've craved sweets my whole life. I'm a candy nut lol. Especially now that I'm 40 weeks prego. Are you prego too? I'd talk to a Dr. about this if your worried. Do you crave sweets 24/7? Tell your Dr. all the details you can and I'm sure he can answer ya a lot better then I can. Smile Goodluck!

I don't think so, alot of women crave sweets during there pregnancy. I know it's been said you tend to crave what your body needs but I don't think having a sweet tooth is a sign of diabetes.

I don't crave sweets too much. It is just that I initially didn't want sweets at all but now that I am near my third trimester they are sounding awfully good. I am not too concerned I was just curious. I have my glucose tolerance test in a few weeks so if anything was wrong it will be caught then.
