Especially if you have gestational diabetes though, your child has a higher chance of developing it later in life.

Well all I know is that if my sugar level goes up by 0.1, I have it. And that was like sept 2nd when she told me that, so I dont kno about now.

And I also kno I had a uterine infection but the doctor gave me some medicine and its gone, if she didnt give me it my baby could've been born w/ a kidney probleem. Blahh.
