-you will be asked for a urine sample at each prenatal visit. It is tested for the presence of glucose.

-a glucose screening test is done at 24-28 weeks of pregnancy. You will drink a special sugar mixture and, one hour later, a blood sample is drawn and level of glucose is measured.

-if the glucose screening test is abnormal, you will be given a glucose tolerance test on an empty stomach. A baseline blood sample is taken, then the woman drinks a glucose solution. Three more blood samples are taken at one-hour intervals.
