From Aurora, Indiana, USA:

I had gestational diabetes and low amniotic fluid while pregnant with my daughter. I was induced at 37 weeks pretty much full term. Can this cause speech or developmental delays?


Thirty-seven weeks is considered term for pregnancy. Gestational diabetes and decreased fluid in an otherwise healthy pregnancy is not directly associated with developmental issues. The decreased fluid may represent some placental insufficiency and can be an indication for delivery.
