Macrosomia Hypoglycemia In Baby
Different problems : During diabetes a fetus can grow too much because of the excess Insulin it produces in response to the mothers blood sugar. It can also fail to grow (iugr) due to diabetes causing a poorly functioning placenta. Both can occur.

I have a history of hypoglycemia, should my baby's heart rate be checked twice weekly at 32 weeks?
High BS--yes, low--?: There are guidelines but no simple answers. An OB care provider who examines an entire OB and medical history plus results of blood tests and prenatal diagnosis and ultrasounds and who knows about the physical findings (weight, bp, etc.) is the best person to determine who needs fetal monitoring, when it should be started and how often it should be done. The same applies for biophysical profiles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Follow growth curve: Large for gestation infants can have several conditions associated such as obesity, changes in blood sugar and even underdevelopment of their lungs and other organs. Your doctor will follow the baby's growth and will determine if any further testing is needed. If your baby did not have a nicu stay, this is more often associated with a better course and fewer problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Second babies usually come quicker and with less problems during delivery than first babies. There are always exceptions to this though. If you have a history of a large baby and this one is smaller, your birth experience may be easier. If you are prone to making large babies and this baby is big too, there is still a chance of difficulties at birth, such as shoulder dystocia and tears. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Throughout pregnancy baby has measured small on ultrasound. Now 34 weeks measuring 60th percentile. Why might this be? Scared of having a large baby!
You and dad: Your baby's size is determined mostly by your and dads genetic codes and how they interact. Your baby's percentile means very little in the way of medical risk unless the percentile is at either end of the growth curve. Being 60th percentile means being right in the middle of the pack - this is good news ! I suggest you talk to your OB and ask them the same questions, it's important ! ...Read more

Extra large baby teeth? A couple of the baby teeth that have erupted in our son's mouth seem too big to me. Is this something to be worried about? Should we see the dentist before the next scheduled visit?
No and yes: Hi. Any diabetic taking insulin will tell you how very real hypoglycemia is. However, there is an utter nonsense self-diagnosis of "hypoglycemia" that is not in the same universe as "true illness". There are also true hypoglycemia cases (VERY rare) due to tumors or hyperplasia of the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. So if you take insulin or your pancreas makes it inappropriately, yes ...Read more
