The risk is mainly to the baby if this has only developed now. Risks include very big babies and stillbirths. You should stick to a diet but you may also need medication to lower the sugar.

Hi Wafa.

If the dr says your bsl is high and it is an ongoing situation, it might be that you have Gestational Diabetes. It will dissapear after birth if you are not a diabetic. The only way is to plan your meals carefully and healty, cut out all Fatty/oily stuff, sweet things and drink as much water as you can. Eat lots of veggies and fruit. You have already come this far, just go the last 5 wks and be carefull and evertything should be just fine. Good luck sweety
