No: It is not normal to get diabetes from multiple pregnancies. Pregnancy does not cause diabetes unless you become progressively obese after the pregnancies. Obesity is the number one cause of type 2 diabetes.
Dr. Gerard Honore

Not uncommon: It's never 'normal' to have diabetes, but gestational diabetes with multiples is not uncommon.

Not Likely: Tubal ligations are not 100% effective. If the tubal ligation was done at delivery it may be a little less effective. Never say never in medicine. I have a patient who became pregnant many years after her tubal ligation. It is always a possibility although not as likely.Tubal ligations are generally 99% effective.
