Gestational diabetes: pregnant women hear the word and curse under their breath. No one wants it but there’s not much you can do about it during pregnancy.
We live in a world where the increasing norm is that we don't live near family. Long passed are the days when our neighbors are our family. Life, jobs, military assignments and school take our families to every corner of the world! That doesn't stop us from having more children (thank goodness!) but it does make things a little harder.
