I’m 30 years old and in my 28th week of pregnancy. I had the glucose test this morning. I was asked to fast for 8-14 hours. I was then tested one hour after taking the medication.

Two years ago, during my last pregnancy, I had gestational diabetes treated with insulin, I am currently seven weeks pregnant, and my blood sugars are already running high.
