Insulin Resistance &  Pregnancy

Hi,

I have insulin resistance and i' m on glucophage at the moment.
If i have insulin resistance now will that mean i' m more than likely going to get gestational diabetes when i' m pregrant?

Insulin resistance is associated with a higher chance of developing diabetes than a non-insulin resistant person, but it is not to say that you will develop gestational diabetes.
