In brief: Ob and Endo

See an obstetrician right away.
And if you have a physician helping you manage your diabetes, let them know asap. If you don't have a diabetes doctor right now, seek a referral from your obstetrician at your visit with them. Diabetes management during pregnancy is especially important for the health of your baby and some things are different than when you're not pregnant, so go right away.

In brief: FP or OB

Your fp or OB will be able to point you in the right direction.
You may need to see an endocrinologist and possibly a maternal fetal medicine doctor. No need to panic. Just make the call.
