During certain points in your pregnancy, you’ll have an appointment with your OBGYN to test for gestational diabetes. This pregnancy condition is unique in that it is only experienced until the baby is carried to term. Not only that, a woman who may experience gestational diabetes during her pregnancy has risk of developing gestational diabetes in future pregnancies. It also confers a 50% risk of developing regular diabetes later in life.
