Gestational diabetes occurs when a pregnant woman, who hasn't previously had diabetes, has an increased high blood glucose levels. Babies born to mothers with gestational diabetes have a high birth weight, low blood sugar and jaundice-- and often have a higher rate of juvenile obesity. If you test positive for gestational diabetes, you doctor will help you modify your diet.

PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE POSSIABLE SIDE EFFECT NOT GARENTEED.  If you eat right and take your meds you can have a perfectly healthy baby. I delivered my first at 36 weeks Due to PreE I am a type 1 diabetic since I was 11. My son was born 6 pounds 4 oz 19 ins long ( the weight and length of a 37 week old) I had the steroid shots at 28 weeks since we knew he would likely be delivered early. His sugar was fine, and he had no janduce. My son is now almost 4 (june 19th DOB) and as skinny as a twig.

My son at easter this 2016.
