Sugar and Pregnancy

March 17, 2016

Big sugar, Big Baby, Big Forceps !!! Jokes aside, excess sugar during pregnancy will increase the size of your baby and may convert a straight forward delivery to a difficult one. We do test you sugar metabolism at around 28 weeks, but sometimes women make the mistake of too much sugar after the test. Also remember that the natural sugar in fruit, juice, berries, honey, etc is just as bad as the added sugar in cakes, etc. There are no shortage of sites that will give additional information (UCSF, Diabetes Australia, Mommypotamus)
