Abstract Extreme fetal macrosomia occurred in the first recorded case of diabetes in pregnancy in 1823. The belief that the diabetic condition was in some way a symptom of the pregnancy, which dates to that first report, has led to the more recent concept of gestational diabetes. Lesser degrees of maternal hyperglycemia were also recognized to be a risk to the baby, and early studies of carbohydrate intolerance in pregnancy in Boston and Los Angeles have set the stage for the worldwide interest in this maternal/fetal interaction.
