  • Yes, it is. You may be considered high risk by some care providers, because of the previous GD but otherwise, you should be fine.
  • We usually encourage people to wait at least one year after a vaginal birth and two years after a Cesarean section before trying to be pregnant again. Most physicians now will recommend that women either not attempt VBAC (vaginal birth after Cesarean) or do so with the understanding that if anything looks unfavorable, the threshold for going right to a Cesarean section would be very low. The reason is that recent research has shown that attempting labor after having a Cesarean greatly increases the chance of uterine rupture. But again, most physicians would recommend that you let things heal for a couple years before trying to become pregnant again (although you may hear different answers).
  • Here is the news release that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) placed on their website in 2004 regarding recommendation against VBAC:

If a woman develops diabetes only while pregnant having it go away after giving birth what are the chances of type one diabetes in the child?

Gestational diabetes is not hereditary in that sense. If you have a daughter then she would have a slightly increased chance of developing gestational diabetes when she has a baby. Answer I developed gestational diabetes while pregnant w/ my now 15 yr old son.It went into" hiding" only to return again in my 2nd pregnancy with my now 11yr old son.Then again it went so called "AWAY" only to return a year after his birth. I have now been a type 1 diabetic for 11yrs...... gestational diabetes is a" warning sign" that within the next 10 yrs you are likely to become a diabetic.Great attention must be taken to your diet NOW if you want to try and prevent yourself from becoming permanently diabetic in the future. As for your daughter becoming a diabetic, they claim that if one or more immediate parents have diabetes your risk factor is high. I have both my son's Hemoglobin A1C and fasting blood sugar levels checked routinely, yearly through their blood work as a precaution hope this helps.........

Can a pregnant woman get pregnant again during pregnancy?


You are pregnant and have glucose traces in your vagina?

All pregnant women have a routine urinalysis done. If a pregnant woman is not processing glucose well, it will "spill" into her urine from the bloodstream. The possible results, as determined by a test strip, are:trace amount1+2+3+The "trace" amount means there is a small (tiny) amount of glucose in the urine (NOT in the vagina). This happens to many pregnant women and is usually nothing to worry about BUT it indicates the woman needs monitored closely for the possibility of developing pregnancy-related problems with processing glucose. This is called Gestational Diabetes because it is brought on by the demands of the pregnancy. Normally, Gestational Diabetes reverts to normal after the baby is born. But high blood glucose is not good for the fetus or mother so the doctor will watch that the "trace" amount in the urine continues to stay low. If the result becomes higher, the doctor may need to treat the mother for Diabetes during the pregnancy. But again, Gestational Diabetes usually fixes itself after delivery; it usually does not develop into chronic Type 2 Adult Onset Diabetes.Just make sure your doctor plans to continue testing either your urine or blood for your glucose level. Ask if they plan to do an A1C (A one C) blood test as well.
