I know they checked me for this sometime around 24-28 weeks and it came ok, but can it develop later than this?

I have no clue, but perhaps you could make it a question to ask your doc next appt.? I have it, and it stinks! Usually you just know when you have it, you can feel the effects of food you probably should not have eaten about an hour after eating them. That isn't all the heartburn stomach stuff either. I hope you don't! Usually when everything checks out it means you're a okay. My results came back all failed so it was pretty obvious I was diabetic, I mean only an hour after the drink they said my blood glucose level shot up way too high. Plus I felt so dizzy and lethargic after drinking it.

i think that you can develop it anytime during pregnancy if you don't watch your diet, but that is just what i heard, i could be wrong. of course they cant test us for it every month. imagine sitting there for a one hour glucose test every month and possibly coming back for a 3 hour test!! dreadful!
