The only way to know whether diabetes medication is needed, or not, is by way of blood testing. Your PCP can perform one or more of the following diabetes tests; a fasting test, or an OGTT [Oral Glucose Tolerance Test], and the best an A1c test.
Metformin is generally considered safe during pregnancy.
High blood sugar in early pregnancy can cause birth defects and/or loss of the pregnancy.
I'd say you need to start testing your blood sugars regularly, eat carefully (low carb), exercise appropriately, and get in to see a doctor as soon as possible.
Some doctors will switch patients from metformin to insulin during pregnancy.
Don't do anything until you get a second opinion. And remember blood sugar control is critical.

i am type 2 diabetic and have pcos. my dr sai the last two tests they did u wouldnt know i was diabeteic as my control is good, i asked if i needed to switch and test everyday and he said no, but then told me to stop taking them and wait until the specialist tells me if i can take them, i havent styopped them as i would rather be safe then lose my baby again,
there is so much conflicting infomation about metformin, and being type 2 and with pcos makes it a nightmare..
