Yes, that's why I was asking about diabetes. I think that women with gestational diabetes or existing conditions deliver larger babies. Either that or the babies who are large tend to acquire diabetes. I'm not sure. Of course not ALL large deliveries are associated with diabetes or sugar, but I know that it is a common factor.My first pregnancy, I ate sooo healthy. I took all my vitamins. I ate a ton of veggies. My baby was almost 7 pounds even though she was born at 35 weeks. Her dad was a 10-pounder. There's only so much you can control through diet, then genetics come into play.I did it the old-fashioned way and I still have a flat tummy (when I stand up ), I healed within weeks (no tearing or episiotomy) and I am definitely very close to being the same down there. Obviously, with the tummy, I had genetics on my side, but I know that the weight loss came from the breast-feeding. I also watched my sugar intake at the end of the pregnancy so that my child turned out 7.6 lbs, which is manageable.
