Check your sugars 2 hrs after meal...if it's persistently more than 120-140 mg/dl even after appropriate dietary restrictions, then probably you have to start insulin as you are nearing full dose of metformin and we don't have much options in oral drugs during pregnancy

Sugars have to be tested 2 hrs post meals to give accurate reports. It appears you are testing 1 he after meal. The goal glucose is less than 95 before breakfast, and less than 120 2 hrs after each meal. Would recommend testing as per above and if it remains above goal, then consider increasing dose of metformin plus adding another tablet.
