Gestational diabetes that's not carefully managed can lead to high blood sugar levels. High blood sugar can cause problems for you and your baby, including an increased likelihood of needing a C-section to deliver.
Complications that may affect your baby
If you have gestational diabetes, your baby may be at increased risk of: Excessive birth weight. Higher than normal blood sugar in mothers can cause their babies to grow too large. Very large babies — those who weigh 9 pounds or more — are more likely to become wedged in the birth canal, have birth injuries or need a C-section birth.
Early (preterm) birth.
High blood sugar may increase women's risk of early labour and delivery before the due date. Or early delivery may be recommended because the baby is large. Serious breathing difficulties. Babies born early to mothers with gestational diabetes may experience respiratory distress syndrome — a condition that makes breathing difficult. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Sometimes babies of mothers with gestational diabetes have low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) shortly after birth. Severe episodes of hypoglycemia may cause seizures in the baby. Prompt feedings and sometimes an intravenous glucose solution can return the baby's blood sugar level to normal. Obesity and type 2 diabetes later in life. Babies of mothers who have gestational diabetes have a higher risk of developing obesity and type 2 diabetes later in life. Stillbirth. Untreated gestational diabetes can result in a baby's death either before or shortly after birth.
Complications that may affect you
Gestational diabetes may also increase your risk of: High blood pressure and preeclampsia. Gestational diabetes raises your risk of high blood pressure, as well as preeclampsia — a serious complication of pregnancy that causes high blood pressure and other symptoms that can threaten the lives of both mother and baby. Having a surgical delivery (C-section). You're more likely to have a C-section if you have gestational diabetes. Future diabetes. If you have gestational diabetes, you're more likely to get it again during a future pregnancy. You also have a higher risk of type 2 diabetes as you get older.

Wren and I can’t wait to find a different job that’s less physical or at least with not such heavy stuff. We’re always exhausted and can’t get enough rest it seems, even if we sleep until 5 pm. I know some of that tiredness is normal but good lord. Not to mention last night was frustrating because we started our shift with only one other employee and the supervisor. I’m calling Walmart today about our interviews we did because what the hell they never got back to us despite saying that they would even if we didn’t get the job. Sometimes I wake up the next day wanting to cry so I know that’s not healthy. I miss my therapist!
So many people are having a hard time making ends meet and are not able to get their weekly checks. The pandemic is ongoing and people are losing their homes, not able to pay for food and not able to pay their bills. People are getting ill and there are shortages of vaccines. These problems are worse for people of color, who, even when they work, are often in low paying jobs with virtually no protection from Covid-19. Unemployment Insurance needs an overhaul.

In our “preparation for professional practice” class we were talking about making our CVs because we have to submit one as part of our portfolio assignment
and the lecturer was encouraging us to put a photo on the CV “because it’s so nice to connect the person I’m reading about to a face, and I love seeing your cute faces” and she also said to do a blub about ourselves to explain what we’ve been doing because it’s suspicious to have time gaps in our work history.
And that just all seems counter to the advice I’ve seen floating around here?
The headshot thing I hate because 1) isn’t that like a major problem in like South Korea? I heard they are required to include photos on job applications and that is a contributing factor to high rates of plastic surgery etc and a really appearance oriented pressure on women especially, becuase your job prospects are determined by how conventonally beautiful you are. And like even without that pressure, normalising and encouraging people to include photos on job applications seems really dangerous for any attempts to rectify inequities in job prospects - gender, racism and colorism, being fat or otherwise outside the conventionally attractive norms, ageism - all of those unconscious biases would be reinforced. People naturally just are inclined to like people that feel familiar to them. You’re supposed to be trying to equalise that effect in the hiring process, not give more tools to fuel unconscious (or conscious!) bias!
as for the life blurb, I pointed out “uh aren’t there some questions it’s illegal for interviewers to ask? and therefore you shouldn’t just volunteer that information either?” age, family situation, health stuff. Her response was kinda reasonable there - they know your age anyway because we need background checks so they have our date of birth. And like don’t include the fact that you’re a parent if it’s not relevant.
I just really don’t like the idea of normalising and encouraging such things becuase it inherently makes those of us who don’t follow along stick out as weirder - if everyone else submits a photo and I don’t then I’m less real and more ignorable. And if I do then my appearance outside of social ideals is highlighted.
but the lecturer is the person who knows how it actually works and I’ve just read some “adulting advise” posts on tumblr so
A Repeat All Over Again
Thousands of migrant labourers belonging to states like Bihar, U.P. and Jharkhand are again going back home from states like Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Punjab.
We had seen last year how the sights of human pain and suffering had shaken the conscience of the nation, when the migrant labourers, left to fend for themselves, had started walking home. They used bicycles, autos, buses, trucks and whatever available on their way.
One year later, we don't seem to have learnt any lesson. A repeat has started playing out, all over again.
Shutdown anxieties, work restrictions, loss of work and fear of being caught unawares amid the rising numbers of covid infections are triggering reverse migration again after one year.
This time however, the number is comparatively less, and mostly men are visible in the packed trains, as they had left their families behind in villages, while coming back to work last year.
The official denial that it's the summer rush for harvest and marriage seasons holds no water, as the ground realities are quite obvious.
The latest diktats on timings of restrictions are bound to disrupt the business and industrial activities. It will be difficult for labourers to cope with financially with the reduced or no wages. Their survival is at stake. Hence, the exodus.
But the migrant labourers had also been instrumental in spreading corona to their respective places. This needs to be stopped urgently this time, when the number of infections is making new highs every day.
There are a number of NGOs coming to the rescue of the needy people in this tough time, but the migrants' concerns are a bit different, and needed to be addressed urgently by the governments.
I decided to fire my job coach after all. That decision was both good and bad. Things are bleak for disabled people who are looking for work.
