This is because you can get gestational diabetes while pregnant. This is where you develop diabetes(i presume it's due to hormones), and if not taken care of, it can lead to the baby being diabetic, where the pancreas doesn't produce any/enough insulin to control the amount of sugar in the blood. This can lead to ketones, which are produced by the body, and basically turn your blood pH weird. I don't know if it's the same with gestational diabetes, but if you're diabetic you're supposed to keep your blood sugar level under 5 for the entire duration of the pregnancy. I'm diabetic, insulin controlled and i can promse you it's not fun.
