What can low potassium during pregnancy cause? Does it cause developmental issues to the baby? I'm 37w4d today.

In brief: Low potassium

Low potassium will not create any developmental problems with the fetus at 37+ weeks, but can cause muscular cramping issues for you as the mother. Bananas are a great source for potassium, naturally.
