Common birth defects with high blood sugars are damage to the heart and spinal cord. I would think that at least the worst issues (if they exist) should be able to be seen with a high level ultrasound.
No one can know for sure if there is damage done or not. But I'd think that if you control very well now there is still a chance that your baby is healthy.
Regardless YOU need to be healthy as well and need to work to control your diabetes well.
