Gestational Diabetes Complications – Learn about the 5 Most Common Complications During Pregnancy During your pregnancy, with every visit to your doctor you grow more excited about having a new baby. You may have a few worries, but with gestational diabetes, you can have more complications than normal. Being aware of what the complications are can help you recognize when they may be occurring and call your doctor if necessary. One of the most common of the gestational diabetes complications is having a larger than normal baby. This puts you as the mom more likely to gain too much weight. When your blood sugar is continually high as is the case with uncontrolled gestational diabetes, your baby’s blood sugar is also high. The baby grows larger than normal because it is getting excess calories and its body puts those extra calories into fat storage. Another of the most common gestational diabetes complications is having to have a Csection. At delivery, if the baby is too large, you may be unable to have a regular birth. C-sections can cost more money because they are an actual operation. They also increase the recovery time for mom to an average of 6 weeks. With the new baby, recovering from a C-section can be difficult. Thirdly, more important gestational diabetes complications can arise related to high blood pressure, which can also lead to preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is usually shown by swelling in your hands and feet it will go away and excess protein in your urine tests which indicates kidney damage. High blood pressure could eventually lead to seizures. Women with gestational diabetes or diabetes during pregnancy tend to have high blood pressure more often.
