your pregnancy has reached its 38th week, your doctor may want to
deliver your baby to reduce the chance that the baby will be abnormally
point, your obstetrician may try to induce labor or perform a cesarean
section (C-section) to deliver the baby.
your fetus is not as developed as it should be, this delivery should
not harm it. If allowed to become too large, it may be too difficult
to deliver your fetus safely.
ultrasounds measurements help determine the size of the fetus and
the need for early delivery.
since treatment of gestational diabetes is very successful in preventing
large babies, many obstetricians will increase fetal monitoring rather
than deliver early.
labor and delivery, you and the baby are monitored closely. Monitoring
blood glucose levels, which will be tested at least every 12 hours.
If your level rises too high, you may be given small amounts of insulin
through a vein (intravenous, or IV). If your level drops too low,
you may be given IV fluid that contains glucose.
fetal heart rate, which provides an indication of how well the baby
is tolerating the birth. Internal or external fetal heart monitoring
may be used. If the baby is large or does not seem to be tolerating
labor, surgery (cesarean section or C-section) may be needed to deliver
the baby. However, most women with gestational diabetes are able to
deliver their babies naturally.
