I am Pregnant can i use insulin?

i have been measuring my blood sugar levels recently and it seems that mainly my problem is my fasting count -usually between 96 and 112. due to my pregnancy i am a bit more antsy about it and have begun measuring my blood sugar more often and at times at which i havent been specifically told to do so. for example now, 3/4 hours after last eating it is 133. am i right to worry? should i be taking insulin?
thanks in advance

Insulin is the traditional first-preference drug for blood glucose control during being pregnant, due to the fact it is the handiest for great-tuning blood glucose and it would not pass the placenta. consequently, it's far safe for the baby. insulin may be injected with a syringe..
