My last pregnancy, I cried bc I tested my sugar and believed I had gestational diabetes. It was high and I freaked. Turned out I didn't have it. Test your sugar in the morning before eating. If it's normal your more then likely fine. If by chance you do have it...dont worry to much, your doctor's will teach you to eat right and youll have a healthy baby.

I was told our sugar runs higher while pregnant bc our baby needs sugar to grow.

Hello,

don't get too anxious.  Even you do have gestational diabetes, it can be managed.  Avoid sweets and too much carbs also.  Follow up with your dr including any additional testing.

FYI, it is not normal for blood sugar to be high in pregnancy.  In fact, blood sugar is typically on the low side during pregnancy.
