In brief: Gestational diabetes

It means you need to check with your doctor further. Have blood sugars monitored every day, initially an attempt to controll them will be with diet.
If nu success medication will be added and your pregnancy will become a high risk pregnancy. Best advice: keep your appts with your doctor.

In brief: Sugar control

It's very important for the baby and yourself to keep ur blood sugar as close to normal as possible.
This can be done through meal planning, physical activity and medications, including Insulin if needed. Pregnacy changes the body so u will need to adapt to keep the blood sugar normal. Keep close contact with ur diabetes team and physician. High sugar will cause many short and long term problems.
