Thanks for your query,
Diabetes during pregnancy may lead to increased need for cesarean section and increased maternal lacerations in mother. For baby also several complications increase like macrosomia, increased chances of congenital malformations and also lots of post delivery complications as hypoglycemia, hypocalcemia, hyperbilirubinemia etc. Glucose metabolism deteriorates to some degree in all pregnant women. So be careful ,dont panic,stress increases blood glucose levels
The most important thing is to keep your blood sugar in control to reduce the chances of any complication.
Best of luck and take care..
Hope it helps..
