Big babies are common with it. I have had it as well so far my baby is measuring normal. Just watch what you eat and drink.
It all depends on your blood sugar. If you have good control over your blood sugar then your baby should not be impacted. Are you testing your blood sugar regularly? If you're under 90 when you wake up and under 140 an hour after meals, you are pretty much good.
Thank you! Yes I'm checking my sugar. They said he was measuring right on track. My numbers are staying normal and I'm watching my diet.
I am 29 weeks 3 days with my third baby. I had gestational diabetes with my second. When she was born she weighed 7lbs 9oz. I was told if you maintain healthy numbers your baby won't be big
I had it, whilst also carrying twins. My babies came out at 6lb 3oz EACH! the equivalent of an average sized baby, my other children were 7lb 3, and 7lb 11. So for twins who were 6 weeks early, and usually smaller than a singleton, YES, gestational diabetes contributed to mine being larger.
