Controlling diabetes during pregnancy is possible, whether there is a history of diabetes or gestational diabetes is developed during pregnancy. When the body isn't able to use the sugar (glucose) in your blood efficiently due to hormone changes and weight gain, sugar levels in your blood may become higher than normal. Gestational diabetes usually develops in the second trimester, sometimes as early as the 20th week of pregnancy.
