In brief: First available

It doesn't matter who you see first.
You need both of them asap. I assume you already have an endocrinologist.

In brief: High risk then endo

I recommend you see both, first a high risk OB then an endocrinologist.

In brief: Both.

Both an experienced endocrinologist and a maternal-fetal medicine specialist are essential to achieve good outcomes out of these extremely high-risk pregnancies.
Blood sugar lability has the potential for maternal/fetal lethality and must be taken extremely seriously throughout pregnancy! try and control you blood sugar for at least three months before conception to minimize risks to the fetus.
