Hi. Depends on which time the reading was taken. Usually after the first hour the reading should be > 140mg/ dL with 50g glucose. You can consult with your doctor if the test needs to be repeated. Take care

General & Family Physician Dr. Vaishali Hebbar's  Response
Pregnancy hormones can block insulin from doing its job. When this happens, glucose levels may increase in a pregnant woman's blood. It usually doesn't have any symptoms. So all pregnant ladies are advised to undergo a glucose-screening test between 24 and 28 weeks. Glucose tolerance test is considered positive only if the readings are more than 140mg/dl after consumption of 50g of oral glucose. So i think ur levels are absolutely perfect.
