In brief: Definitely !
Glycohemoglobin or hemoglobin A1c is a reflection of your chronic control reflecting on your average blood sugar of the last 3 months.
It is more important to focus in tighter control during pregnancy. Scheduled meals and blood sugar testing after each meal is necessary for good control.
