The danger of excessive weight gain during pregnancy

The first trimester of pregnancy is an important time because it will affect the health of the mother during pregnancy. Gain excessive weight during pregnancy may increase the risk of developing gestational diabetes later in their pregnancy. This effect is more obvious in overweight women.

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is a condition in which women without previously diagnosed diabetes exhibit high blood glucose levels during pregnancy (Wikipedia). Typically occurs during the second or third trimester of pregnancy. It can lead to early delivery, C-sections and type 2 diabetes, and can increase the child's risk of developing diabetes and obesity later in life.

The study funded by the American Diabetes Association and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseaseshas found that weight gain before pregnancy and being overweight or obese at the start of pregnancy are risk factors for gestational diabetes.
