JUST KIDDING! LoL! I went to the doctor the other day, and I am a diabetic. The dr was telling me how babies born to diabetic usually are big (of course), but have immature lungs. But babies born to crack/coke addicts are very small, but will come out screaming with great lung function due to the stress of drugs. Ummm...so should I go smoke crack!? lol! I just thought this was really crazy!

you said "of course" but I still don't get it. Why are babies born to diabetics bigger than others?

That made me laugh!! You definitely got my attention with that t_tle. It's a shame you couldn't just go and smoke some crack to counteract the effects of your diabetes. Sorry, but I don't think it works that way. Hang in there! :o)

it is just a known fact that diabetics have much larger babies due to the effects of not perfectly controlled blood glucose levels. I've been diabetic for 12 years (diabetes mellitus)

Hi, I have had type 1 diabetes for 30 years (I am 31) and the reason is of High blood sugars! It is very important to keep your sugars around 100, the reason is that your baby could get a heart problem or spina bifida. My son was 8 1/2 pounds at birth. May God be with you always.
