Dear madam relax
there is nothing to panic.
vaginal infections in pregnancy are quite common and most of the times don't need any treatment.
Regarding your blood sugar levels they are only mildly elevated and there is no need to worry.
i suggest you to control your diet and go for regular walking.
Regular walking and yoga will help you not only to control diabetes but also increases your chances of normal delivery.
Take advice for diet expert for Gestational diabetes ,prepare your own customized diet plan.
monitor your sugars once every two days before lunch and 2 hrs after lunch and prepare chart.
relax everything will be fine.
