Large baby: Since you have gestational diabetes, you will need to be follwed more intensely throughout your pregnancy. The diabetes can cause the baby to grow too big. Follow your diabetic diet, get plenty of approved exercise and wean off caffeine. Drink plenty of water (3 qts/liters) daily.

Baby US scan: No. The six day window is within the error of measurement for an US at six weeks. Diagnoses with GD yet A1c at 4.6 is good. Check your sugars as directed by your OB. Watch your diet. Hope you met with a nutritionist and know how to eat properly during this pregnancy. Hope this helps. Best of luck and congratulations. Dr R
