I got GD with my first baby/pregnancy, which obviously went away after baby was born. Because I had it with the first when I got pregnant a second time they made me get tested early on in the pregnancy (about 12 weeks) but it came back that I didn't have it. They want me to get tested again at 28 weeks like normal, I feel like I don't have it this time but is it possible for it to develop later on?

Hi @KarinaJayne, I had 2 tests this pregnancy (twins) - the first at 14 weeks and the second one at 27 weeks. I passed the first one with flying colours but unfortunately the second one showed that I now have GD. So I guess it goes to show it can develop as the pregnancy progresses. I would do the second test to be on the safe side - hopefully it will be all good but if not, it's the kind of thing you want to know.

I've been informed that GD normally develops at the 24-26 week mark because the placenta can't make enough insulin at that point to cope. Sometimes it does start earlier as well! Def get the test and good luck!

I had GD with all three pregnancies. My third bub is almost 4 months old and as i am a lot older this time, i was insulin dependent. Bubs is absolutely fine and i don't have diabetes but i need to lose weight now as i may develop it in later years. My last pregnancy, i was tested at 17 weeks and yep, had it lol. Just be mindful, watch your diet and if your dr recommends further testing, I'd do it.
