My DD is 8 months old and I am 12 weeks pregnant with our second child. I had my first appointment with my ob and she did not seem worried about it at all and said she would do blood work at 15 weeks. Shouldn't they test me sooner for GD? I'm just worried about this baby having birth defects if my sugar is already rising. I didn't get diagnosed with GD last time until I was around 32 weeks - I passed two 3 hour tests but she kept wanting to check further so it's weird that she seems so lax this time. I'm trying to eat well but it's really hard first trimester when everything sounds nasty. When did you 2nd time moms with previous GD get checked?
