Gestational diabetes mellitus

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
You have increased 1 hour and 2 hour post glucose blood sugar levels.
This means you have developed gestational diabetes mellitus.
You should consult consult your OBGYN specialist for diabetic diet, further blood sugar monitoring ( recommended 2 weeks after the diabetic diet) and HbA1C levels to rule out any pre Pregnancy diabetes.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
