With gestational diabetes, the aim is to get morning glucose levels below 6 and levels I hour after meals (i.e 1 hour after the first bite of food) to less than 8, and therefore I would suggest testing at these times. Certainly if you are unable to attain these levels, then insulin should be started after about 3 days.
Also remember that diabetes in pregnancy puts you at risk for diabetes later on, and therefore you must have glucose levels reassessed 3 months post delivery.
