  • I found out at 28 weeks and i did not end up with diabetes after I delivered.
    I guess it does increase the chances later in life though.

  • I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes around 26 weeks, and after I delivered it went away. It does increase your chances of developing type 2 later in life. I'm type 2 now partly because of my gestational diabetes, but also I have it on both sides of my family.
