Hi
If this is your first time that your glucose levels have gone up, then you need to have them formally tested by your doctor to confirm if you have diabetes. You will then need to have appropriate medications for pregnancy, and you will only be able to look at falling pregnant when glucose levels are well controlled. If weight has gone up and periods are irregular, then you will potentially need investigations for this as well
