I developed diabetes in my last pregnancy. What tests can I have this time to see if I get it again?

If you developed diabetes in a previous pregnancy that got better after delivery of your baby, then you have a higher chance of developing this so called ''gestational diabetes'' again. Often this means that you need an extra blood test for glucose (sugar) between 20-26 weeks, or a ''glucose tolerance test'' (GTT). This is tested for by drinking something sweet and measuring the glucose level in your blood at half hourly intervals for 2 hours which often provides an accurate diagnosis of diabetes.
