Hi.. Your condition may be best described as glucose intolerant condition.. It is usually  a prediabetic condition.. Best managed by dietary modification and weight reducing exercise... Since you are pregnant now, monitor your sugars and consult a doctor if the sugars go high. Diabetic can hurt your growing fetus... So take  medical help when ever possible..

Hello.Welcome o HCM forum.You are suffering from Impaired Glucose Intolerance.Since significant insulin resistance of pregnancy develops only in third trimester,gestational diabetes sets in only in this period.Usually blood glucose is normalized after delivery.If frank diabetes develops in your third trimester then you have to be put on injectable insulin.Women having gestational diabetes are at higher risk to develop type 2 DM in their early forties.Be on touch with your doctor regarding diabetes.Uncontrolled diabetes in third trimester results in large sized babies.Thanks and good luck.
