It is a good idea to reach out to your doctor in the early stages of pregnancy. Even better, visit your doctor before trying to become pregnant. Your doctor will be able to assess your risk of developing Gestational Diabetes (also known as GDM). Once you become pregnant, your doctor will then know to assess your risk for GDM through your prenatal care.
If you develop GDM, be ready to possibly schedule follow-up appointments more regularly. These follow-ups will most likely need to be done in the last three months of pregnancy.
