  • It's just part of pregnancy but if you are worried, talk to your doctor

  • if you think you are at risk, there are measures you can take...don't eat or severely restrict sugar...including white bread, rice and pasta. be sure to eat meals regularly, and eat at regular intervals...what ever advice you got during your last pregnancy. i think they routinely check around 24 weeks, but it may be even later than that.
    good luck with your #2!
