I know I spelled all of that wrong. But can you avoid it? I heard it was haratary (spelled that wrong too). Does drinking a lot of sugary drinks effect weither you get it or not?

Well, you don't want to drink lots of sugars anyway... But it is more hormonal than anything. I had it with my first, and not at all with my second. I get tested next week for this time around :) You need to be on a good diet anyway to properly care for your baby. And while it might not prevent GDM, eating well can prevent issues for your baby if you have it and don't find it right away, kwim?
Also, GDM can cause high birth weight. My son was on schedule to be 10lbs when we found mine. I ate a healthy diet and was able to control mine with diet only. He was only 8lb6oz and I was able to give birth to him vaginally... I was very thankful for that because often the complications end up in c-section.
