Hi, we lost our precious second son at 32 wks. last Sept. due to a placental abruption due to preclampsia. It happened out of the blue. I will be 27 wks. tomorrow with our third child and so far so good with me as well. Sorry that you lost your baby girl last year. Preclampisa is very scary. I hope everything goes well for you and your baby. I don't think preeclampsia ties in with a larger baby, but I don't know for sure either. Take care, Laura

My gestational diabetes test came back negative but my glucose was a bit high today.

Thank you for the congratulations.

We're praying for a healthy baby boy and remembering our little Emily who would have been 1 this Saturday.

Congratulations on 30 weeks :D
I assume you had your screening for gestational diabetes already and it came back negative? As far as I know gestational diabetes can make big babies. PE babies tend to be small (IUGR) rather than large, I believe (but I am not a doc). It could also be genetics and baby's measurements are never exact; there is always some room for error.
Did you doctor seem concerned?

Hi Ladies,

I've been on this site daily but have not posted in awhile. Last May 25, I lost my beautiful baby Emily at 34 weeks due to a massive placenta abruption as a result of preeclampsia.

Fast forward nearly one year and I am 30 weeks pregnant. So far so good. No signs of preeclampsia and my tests are coming back normal. I have not had high blood pressure and my bp we t back to normal 2 weeks after my babies death. II do have a question though. Today I went for an ultrasound and my MFM told me that I am growing a very big baby and he is now 4lbs and in the 97th percentile.

What are the risks associated with large babies? Are large babies and preeclampsia related? Is this potentially an indication of problems to come?
