    I currently have gestational diabetes. Was diagnosed at 17 weeks. My doctors checked that early because I had preeclampsia in my last pregnancy. I'm currently 29 weeks. Anyway, I washed this video to further educate myself on my condition. With what I know and what I learned from this video, I got a B on the test 😆 I now know a lot about preeclampsia, hypertension and diabetes. Starting to consider switching careers to nursing because I want to help people who are going through any type of complications during pregnancy. Congratulations to anyone in nursing school or who have passed their nursing exams. You are all champions ❤❤❤ This video was sooo helpful!!!
