Answer: Hello dear!! He would firstly do your Glucose Tolerance Test (GCT) to know your hba1 c levels. You may have gestational diabetes. If your hba1c is not normal, then it may cause birth defects such as macrosomia or hypoglycemic. In this the child's head gets bigger. To reduce this, you will have to control your diet a lot. If hba 1c is more then you should start medication. Sugar does not take much time to grow. Take a 30-minute walk everyday. Totally stop having sugary and high in carbs your food. Don't stress yourself and get it tested on a priority

    Glucose tolerance test is different and HBa1c test is different. Don't worry please do as per doctor advice. Take proper medicine and strict diet. Go for walk. If you control your blood sugar it won't affect your baby.

    Don't worry it won't affect your baby. Many women have this during pregnancy, called gestational diabetes. Go as per ur Dr. Take care

    Hi,the normal fasting sugar levels should be less than 95 and 1 hr after eating should be less than 140, doctor might start with medicine or may prescribe insulin to control as it does not cross the placenta and is safest, diet control can help majorly, doctor might ask to monitor it for some days to see the trend and post that will prescribe. Take care
