Hi Normalei!

Thanks for your question and welcome!

You can get any number of home testing kits that are available at pharmacies and drug stores.

Some hurt a little with the pin prick but it's very temporary. Others claim not to hurt at all but you (or are other readers need to be the judge of that!).

I think asking your pharmacist is a good idea and check out our blood sugar testing page where you can link to related searches on the right hand side. You can find it here : http://www.empowher.com/condition/search/114-blood-glucose-and-gestation...

And check out our Diabetes page here : http://www.empowher.com/condition/diabetes

Normalei, do you have diabetes or suspect you may have?
