Yes, you may have had GD without it affecting her sugars. It can sometimes develop later than 22-24 weeks, whcih is when it usually develops. It can crop up earlier too, my mom had it at 14 weeks with my brothers. If you've had it before it can even start right away when you get pregnant.

That being said, not all big babies are big because of GD. With GD causing the complications it does it's better to be safe than sorry, but it's certainly possible your daughter was big because she was going to be big at birth.
