    Hi,

    Does anybody know when they test you for gestational diabetes? I had it in my previous pregnancy and have just found out I'm pregnant again but I don't know how far I am yet.

    They’re starting to test twice now. Once earlier in pregnancy and again later. I want to say 18-20 weeks and then 27-28 weeks? If you’ve had it before I’m sure they’ll be proactive with it. I’d assume you have it and watch what you eat until you get tested. Just to be sure :)

    Congrats Crazychic! The older you get the more likely you develop gestational diabetes. I'm sure they will follow up closely this time as well. I think they might even test you earlier than the 24ish week mark.x

    I had it with my son and got pregnant 4 months after he was born and didn’t have it again. So you may not have it! They tested around 27 weeks. Congrats :)

    Thank you ladies.

    Fingers crossed, I don't get it this time round then.
