Happy Monday everyone! Hope your pregnancies are running smoothly and surely!
During pregnancy, your body has to produce extra insulin to meet your baby’s needs, especially when he’s growing rapidly. If your body can’t make enough insulin, you may end up with too much sugar in your blood, resulting in GD.
Having too much sugar in your blood may mean that your baby grows large.
This increases your chances of having an induced labour, and a caesarean birth.
GD, especially if it’s not controlled, even raises the risk of a baby being stillborn. That’s why it’s so important to follow the advice of your midwife or doctor if you’re diagnosed with GD.”
