This can be an occurrence in some women and there is no need to panic, however you should contact your obstetrician who would perhaps refer you to a physician.

High blood sugar levels can occur in some stressful situations and in Pregnancy its called pregnancy induced. Our bodies have what is called a sympathetic system which helps us in times of stress by raising our heart rate, blood pressure and blood sugar so that we are "equipped to fight the stress."

Sometimes this goes overboard and such a situation arises in pregnancy. While all pregnancy induced hyperglycemia may NOT indicate future development of diabetes it is wise to keep a watch on blood sugar levels periodically and esp in future pregnancies.

It would be advisable to talk to your obstetrician who will be surely able to get a physician's consultation for you. Watch your diet, exercise regularly as advised by your obstetrician and do not worry (worry is a stress and will further raise blood sugar levels). Remember in medical matters - talk freely to "YOUR" qualified treating doctor who knows all the details of your case because what can be given on such forums is only generic advice. Each one of us is unique and only your regular doctor would know all the relevant details about you and be able to give the most appropriate advice. Stay happy because you are blessed with the most precious gift all - the ability to create life and nurture it.
