Hi and thanks for using the forum.

Gestational diabetes is a condition that occurs during pregnancy that affects how your body uses sugar.  

Generally, gestational diabetes does not show many signs and symptoms.  Occassionally, women feel increased thirst and the need to urinate frequently.  

It is important to start your pre-natal care early, when you first find out that you are pregnant.  You will be screened for gestational diabetes as part of your prenatal care.  While gestational diabetes does cause some difficulties during pregnancy, it can successfully be managed and you can still have a healthy normal pregnancy.  Good luck.

Bridget
