What are the complications of gestational diabetes?

Did you baby suffer from any complications associated with gestational diabetes?

I have it now and was wondering how common complications are. Thanks.

  • I had gestational diabetes and my daughter is fine; nor were there any complications. Just follow the diet they give you and have your blood sugar tested regularly. Good luck and congrats!

  • I don't have it but have had a few friends have it whose babies never had complications.. they monitored their sugars, ate healthy and had natural births (they refused an induction). Ironically the one person I know who had complications got induced...

  • The only problem my son had was he was born with a low blood sugar. One feeding and it took care of that. My son was also a large baby which can be caused by gestational diabetes but my first wasn't much smaller so I don't know if it had to do with that or not.
