Having high sugar level during pregnancy. Possibility of gestational diabetes?

Hey, my name is Ashley. I had a blood glucose test done today, i am 27 weeks pregnant. My result was 171 and that was four hours after eating. My first test with fasting at 16 weeks was 113. Is it a high possibility that i have gestational diabetes? My mother had it, and so did her mother. Also, my first child was 9 pounds 10 ounces. Thank you.
