Pregnant TALENT SHOW JUDGE developed gestational diabetes during first pregnancy

Meghan Trainor has opened up about suffering from gestational diabetes and the changes that she has had to make to her lifestyle as a result.

The 26-year-old mum to be is just two months away from welcoming her bundle of joy but now has to take extra care with her blood sugar levels as a result.

The condition, that develops during pregnancy, means that Meghan has to track her diet and check her blood.

However, the musician – who is expecting a boy with husband Daryl Sabara – is confident that she is “crushing it” during her third trimester.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Meghan went into more detail about gestational diabetes

She explained that many women suffer from the condition and both her and the baby are doing well.

“I got gestational diabetes, but so many women have it,” Meghan said via video call.

“It was just the unknowing. I didn’t know what it was. It’s like a genetics thing. My mom had it and she didn’t even give me a full warning.”

The songstress added: “I just watch what I eat now. I write everything now, I check my blood. And we’re good now. I’ve been crushing it.

“It’s like a game for me and I’m winning. It’s nice to know we’re both healthy.”

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that first develops during pregnancy.

According to the NHS, women that suffer from the condition are able to control the condition by managing their blood sugar levels and keeping an eye on healthy eating and exercise.

Meghan has been very open about her recent diagnosis, and also admitted that it was nice to learn about healthy eating.

“It’s nice to learn so much about food and health,” she told Today last week, “and [it’s] nice to hear that so many women experienced this.” 

Meghan and Daryl only announced their exciting pregnancy news on social media at the start of October.

The expectant parents have been sharing updates with their fans as they gear up to welcoming their son in February.
