Diagnosed with IgT. What does this mean and will it affect my baby?

Hi, I just received news that I have igt. What is it and how does it effect myself and the baby? I meet with a dietician in 2 days but I eat healthy...I don t understand how I got this. With my first pregnancy, my son was 8.6 and I gained 26 lbs. I started out at 132lbs. I am currently around the same weight. I am quite nervous right now.

Welcome to HCM.
IGT means Impaired Glucose Tolerance leading to GDM. It has various ill effects on baby if not controlling like big baby,heart defect etc.
Your first son was also big enough (8.6 lbs). Do USG periodically and amniocentesis around 16-18wks to rule out any congenital defect.
Control body wt with limited calorie. Consult with your doctor for periodic check up.
Be well.
