In brief: Large for gestationa
The mother has a large for gestational age infant.
This is sometimes due to gestational diabetes. At times it is because of maternal overweight or the development of gestational diabetes in the future pregnancies. Even if the mother has normal fasting glucose, she should have glucose tolerance test and hemoglobin A1c to confirm that she does not have type 2 or gestatational diabetes.
