In brief: Maybe

While the presence of sugar in urine can be a sign of diabetes, in pregnancy it's often due to recent intake of sugar containing or high carbohydrate food.
The resulting spike in blood sugar often spills into the urine. Nevertheless it's good to be checked earlier for gestational diabetes if this recurs.
