In brief: Gestational diabetes

Checking your blood sugars with gestational diabetes is a way to ensure that they are normal.
Blood sugars are usually checked 2 hrs after eating and may also include a blood sugar just before eating. Check with your doctor.

In brief: Fasting, 2-hour post

Fasting morning blood glucose check and 2-hour postprandial (i.
e. After breakfast, lunch and dinner) checks are typically used to assess diabetic control in pregnancy.
