Gestational diabetes is the kind of diabetes that takes place only in pregnant women. It is possible for you to develop gestational diabetes for the first time during pregnancy or you might have a slight undiagnosed case of diabetes that gets worse when you're finally pregnant.
Do you know that during pregnancy, the body's use of insulin changes considerably? Insulin breaks the food particles into glucose that can be used for generating energy within you.
