Hello,

Usually a pregancy test will show positive close to when your period is due, ie. Approx. 14 days from ovulation.

I got a positive test with my last baby at 10 days post ovulation.

However I knew something had happened within about 2 days after ovulation as my insulin requirements changed immediately.

Possibly you are pregnant.  Keep excellent control of your blood sugar and hope you can let us know your good news soon.

Pregnancy does have an effect I'm guessing as some women are known to develop gestational diabetes. If you want you can test with a blood beta hcg test 2-3 weeks from your last intercourse presuming it was unprotected. If it was protected, I'd say ur odds are slim
