The third trimester comes with its own set of physical challenges as your body continues to change and grow. I’ve called this “3rd trimester sickness” as opposed to “morning sickness” which is what I think most people associate with first trimester- and something I never really had. If your pregnancy has been progressing normally, you’ve probably been seeing your doctor once or twice each month. Although they have been fully formed since week 12, an enormous amount of maturity and development has been taking place since then. This is the trimester when all of your baby’s organs and systems will be preparing for extra uterine life. Insulin is the hormone that ushers glucose from the blood into body cells, where it can be used as energy or stored as fat. Data were analyzed using analysis of variance and chi 2 testing, with P < .05 considered significant. Insulin and c-peptide of these 3 groups dropped gradually within 2 months after delivery but in group I and II they were significantly higher than those of group III (P < 0.01). Women with gestational diabetes (n=67 or 13.7%) had significantly increased maternal age, pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index, hemoglobin levels at booking and at 36–38 weeks, and incidences of parity >1, pre-eclampsia, and female infants, while the gestational age was shorter and there was no significant difference in the birthweight outcome or neonatal morbidity. Your health practitioner will swab your vagina and rectum to screen for this bacterial infection.
