Answer: hi dear! yes you have very high chances of developing gestational diabetes in this one also . you will have to monitor what you eat and also firstly you will have to get your sugar reports done every 2-3 weeks just so that when the reports go high medicine can be given to control it on time dear. you will have to reduce the sugar intake ofcourse and will have to go for walks daily dear. for atleast 30min.also have a low salt diet dear. and monitor your bp as well. take care dear.

Answer: Not sure,it is commonly said that if your 1st delivery is a C section,the second will also be the same.But since you said it was 5years back,there may be a chance of normal delivery this time..Drink plenty of water,do small exercise after 5 months,try to use Indian toilet at home,try to be active this will all help in normal delivery.

Question: I had a c section before 1-3/4 years ago.. i want normal delivery. its possible.?
Answer: Hi dear, Mostly previous c section delivery,would make the normal delivery next time difficult.the successive delivery post c sections are mostly c section only.VBAC is what it is called.vaginal birth after C section.if everything looks good with your reports,doctors will monitor you more closely during your labour if you've had a caesarean before. This is because of a risk of the scar from your last caesarean tearing during contractions,utrene rupture,which is very very rear but possible.
