Gestational diabetes and premature birth Diabetes is a condition in which there is an inability to control blood sugar levels and it leads to high amounts of sugar in the blood. Gestational diabetes can make your baby grow larger than normal, or be large for gestational age (LGA).

If these tests are out of a healthy range, your provider will monitor your baby closely.

Feeding your baby as soon as possible after birth, preferably by breastfeeding, can prevent or correct hypoglycemia. Pre-term birth Your blood sugar will probably return to normal after you give birth. But you’ll have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later or gestational diabetes again with another.
