it causes massively large babies, can make your blood pressure too high, cause toxsemia, preeclampsia and heart/breathing problems for baby. There is NO excuse for gestational diabetes to be out of control- between diet, exercise, and IF NEEDED insulin shots. The only way it would be "out of control" is if the mother is being irresponsible and not following doctors orders, and sneaking food she shouldn't be eating.
I had it with my last pregnancy, and have it agian with this one, all it took was following doctors orders, and watching what I ate-

I have gestational diabetes with this pregnancy, I didn't have it with my first. I've been keeping it under control with diet and checking my blood sugar 4x a day. I'm not sure how big my baby is, but I know we are inducing a week early because of her size... which is fine with me because I cannot get comfortable for nothing!!! Follow your doctor's orders.... I was afraid I couldn't manage it, but because diabetes runs in my family, she's on me like a hawk!!!
