  • before or while? I was diagnosed with Gestational during my pregnancy and had some issues but I would think if you control it before and during, you will be just fine

  • as in gestational diabetes?? I had it once. It's not bad as long as you treat it correctly.... ignore it and both you & baby could have major issues

  • The other ladies are right as long as you keep it under control you should be fine but if you don't take care of yourself it can be very dangerous to both you and the baby.

  • I get tested for it on Monday...never had it before but my MIL has diabetes and she does not take care of herself and it has really made her condition worse.
