Family Medical History

Since July is less then a month away, I asked my mom to create a family medical history list.  I remember when I was pregnant before that they asked about family medical history and I have read in several places that when you are trying to conceive they will ask you this as well.  I got it today in the mail.  I had her go as far back as great grandparents since that was what I had been asked before.

I noticed that almost all have/had high blood pressure, most have/had heart problems and many have/had diabetes among other things.  Though for all except my dad they were diagnosed with diabetes when they were elderly.  My father was diagnosed with diabetes at 23.  Hopefully if I keep losing weight my risks of getting any of those will decrease.

Now I just have to wait for my husband to get his family info and this step will be complete.
