How many of you had diabets while you were pregnant and it never went away afterwards?

I had diabets for both my pregnancies. My first I took insulin injections, not so bad I got used to it. However my second was so much worse that after I had her it never went away. In fact she was 10lbs 2oz due to the diabets mostly and her blood sugar was only 23 at birth. She had to be on IV's for 3days in the special care unti. There were many problems with her at birth, not all diabetic related. She is fine now. Im just worried about passing this one to my girls.

The chances of your girls having problems with diabetes I'm sorry to say are increased due to the fact that you had gestational diabetes with them. I had GD as well, and my sugars are still kinda screwy 9 months after the birth, but I'm not diabetic. I think all you can do is try to introduce them to an active lifestyle and ingrain good eating habits in them. Good luck! Glad your girls are doing well now!
