Anyone diagnosed early with Gestational Diabetes?

I'm 10 weeks 3 days pregnant. I went to my OB yesterday for my intake appt. The nurse asked about my symptoms, and I mentioned how extremely thirsty I am. I drink probably close to a gallon of water a day, with maybe a glass of tea or lemonade thrown in. I told her that I had downed a bottle of water on the way to the appt and was still thirsty. The nurse said that wasn't normal and I needed to mention it to the doc at my 12 week appt and in the meantime watch my sugars and carbs. She also mentioned that other GD symptoms were extreme fatigue and frequent urination. Well, I am a full time teacher with a 2 year old and a 4 year old at home. It is baseball season and my whole family plays, I also work after school 2 days a week, of course I'm tired. As far as the urination goes, I'm drinking close to a gallon of water a day, of course I pee a lot.

My question is, what were your OTHER symptoms? I'm not overweight. My blood sugars with both of my previous pregnancies were low (50-60's) when tested. I haven't gained anything with this pregnancy. What is the liklihood I would develop GD this early? I was also living a much healthier lifestyle when I got pregnant this time than I was the other two times.
