For those worried about having a big baby


So when I was diagnosed with GD I was terrified of having a large baby. At my 35 week scan they estimated her at 6lb 7oz and she would be around 9lbs. I have very narrow hips and I was terrified of her getting stuck or having shoulder dystoxia.

Well, she was born at 39+1 at 6lb 6oz. (Still needed a c section because she still wouldn’t fit!)

So those scared like me, don’t stress yourself out! GD does not necessarily always mean a big baby. I was diet controlled, I had high numbers at least once a day. My fasting was in the high 90s (had to be under 100 but I know a lot of y’all have to be under 90)
