Objective: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the glucose intolerance detected during pregnancy. The most common neonatal complication of these mothers is macrosomic or large for gestational age (LGA) babies. We evaluated the pre-pregnancy body mass index (PP-BMI) and the effects of glycemic control on the frequency of neonatal complications and macrosomia in GDM pregnancies.
