Brief Summary:
The purpose of this retrospective pilot study is to assess the association of maternal hypoglycemia during the one hour glucose tolerance test with decreased placental weight and identifiable placental pathology. We hypothesize that a decreased one hour glucose tolerance test is a risk factor for decreased placental weight, an increased fetal to placental weight ratio, and other identifiable placental pathology.
