Procedure: Usual Care
Blood sugar evaluation (accuchecks) every four hours in latent labor and every 2 hours in active labor.Participants will be routinely managed with maintenance fluids of lactated ringers during latent labor and lactated ringers with dextrose 5% in active labor. Blood sugars of more than 110 mg/dl at any time point in labor will be treated with an insulin drip as follows:
Regular insulin (100 units) in 100cc of normal saline, with Lactated Ringers with 5% dextrose at 125cc/hour. If blood sugar 111-140, insulin drip at 1 unit/hour will be given and continued if blood sugar is 111-140.If blood sugar is 141-180, then drip will be changed to to 1.5 unit/hour and if blood sugar is 181-220, drip will be changed to 2.0 units/hour and MD will be called if blood sugar is more than 221 mg/dl
