I have a question...

I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy and I worried I am gonna get it again with this pregnancy. Is there anyone else out there that had this problem to? And since im pregnant again does that mean I will get them again?

  • Did you tell a fibby fib and drink soda or anything before you went in for the test?  I had it with my 1st because I did that.  I haven't had any problems with it other than that.

  • Your chances of having it again are increased but it's not a guarentee.

    A friend of mine had it with the first baby and so when she got pregnant with the second she followed the diet her whole pregnancy just to be on the same side. She never developed it.

  • Babe it's not the end of the world!  I know it seems horrible but really it's not!  Yeah I hate that nasty crap too.  It doesn't mean that you are going to have it with this baby!  You already know what it's like to have it so you already know the ins and outs!  I know it's upsetting but you'll get through it even if it shows you have it again!
