Giving birth in the summer?
I was just reading that there is a new risk for gestational diabetes that they think they have identified- being exposed to hot temperatures a month before giving birth.

When are you due?  Do you think hot temperatures a month before giving birth is really a risk factor?

Maybe people eat more sweets and fruits in the summer?  Just a guess.  I would think this is correlation rather than causation.

Oh that's a thought- ice cream is definitely a bigger thing in the summer and all those fresh fruits are in season.
