||My mood while writing this blog:|
I went to my appointment yesterday and met with the back up doctor that would do my C-Section if I had to go that route again... Hopefully that will not happen, because that means that I failed at a vaginal birth once again. I found out Monday that I have Gestational Diabetes :-( This came as a huge shock to me. I had not problems with my first pregnancy and I only failed the 1 hour by 1 point...I really did not expect it. So anyhow, I go in to see him and he immediately tried to put me on medicine (Metformin). I told him that I want to see how I can control it with diet and exercise first. That really pissed me off that he tried to do that. Then I asked him about this rash I just had pop up..and he just mumbled something and had no idea what it was... Oh well.I didn't really expect him to. Then I talked to him about my VBAC and he could not have been any more discouraging to me. We was about to start arguing! He spouted off that my chances were not good! I told him that a lot of things happened in my last birth that just should not have happened.
I am not going to let him get to me though because I have everything on my side this time. I am taking Bradley classes (Which are really wonderful BTW!) and I am signing a contract with a doula this weekend. I am going to the hospital with the lowest C-Section rate in the area and they have telemetry monitoring and labor tubs so that I can get up and move around during labor. So, if I fail this time...it WILL be for something medically necessary!
But, he did say that she felt like she is head down...so that is great news...I am always worried about her being breech...well up until about a week and a half ago. I felt her flip on my way home from an ICAN meeting. It wasn't a very comfortable feeling by all means. And he left saying, "well I hope that we don't have to meet again because that means you got your VBAC. " *FINGERS CROSSED*
Oh and I only gained 2-lbs since my last visit! Yay!
Besides that, I am feeling really tired and am having lots of pelvic pain. I can tell I am in the 3rd trimester.
11 more weeks at the most..and I get to meet my little girl!

- Thursday, 14 Aug I'm sorry to here you have Gestational Diabetes. I was diagnosed about a month ago, so you're in good company!! The diet I'm on is really hard but I'm sticking to it...I keep telling my self I'm doing it for my little one. I just started testing my blood sugars this week and so far it's not very fun. If you have any questions about it feel free to send me a note!. I'm also happy to hear you only gained 2 pounds. I saw my Dr on Tuesday and I gained 7 LOL
