Thank you for putting up your problem to Healthcare Magic!
Yes, glycomet is safe in pregnancy & you should continue it as prescribed by your diabetologist & regularly get your blood sugar checked becuse increased blood sugar level is very dangerous to the fetus.

I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you.
