Thank u very much!
It is definitely crazy, but I know her being born early is safer with the problems Im having. I just hope that she doesnt come out with too many difficulties cause I know its obviously possible that she could. I just have to trust my doctor at this point. Atleast I know she will be getting stress test done on here and now growth scans more than likely. I want her to bake as long as she can, but obviously not passed the point that its no longer safe because of my health.
I havent been diagnoised with that yet but I do have pitting edema that he rates at a +1 so it could be worse. They just can not get my blood pressur under control, even with my medicine. Also, I just had doctor appoinment with the GD specialist. My fasting glucose is too high, it runs over 90 which means I now have to inject insulin before bed. So, i will probably be monitored even closer for her safety. Probably have growth scans since he said I would if i had to be on insulin and he already said hes gunna start stress test. Im not real sure what all will happen. Dont know if this will change to a sooner induction or not.
Aww, ill have to look. Did you have a good experience or was he stubborn? My doc appointments have been dropped to every week b/c of my high blood pressure. Also, he has decided as of yesterday that he will induce me between 37-38 weeks. Not sure what will happen if another problem pops up, i know the swelling is getting alot worse.
Well, he works monday-saturday at his full time job and then his part time is anywhere between 10-20 hrs. Sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do. I do miss him, but we needed more income. I had high BP before I got pregnant, so every since I had my very first baby doc appointment, they switched my med(also switched my dosage recently and I take it twice a day) and they have me check my BP at home. I get swelling in my hands and feet but so far my doctor is telling me is normal, which i know it cant be, but I also know its can turn into a more serious situation like Pre- E. Even if you ask ur doctor to induce you, doesnt mean he/she will. Im not sure what to tell you on the test for GD b/c everyone on here that ive talked to seems to have had different intructions than me, along with friends that i know personally. For MY one hour test I was only told to eat a light breakfast but nothing high in sugar. I ate sugar free pudding(sugar free stills means that more than likely there is artifical sugar in it) I wasnt told to fast or carb load. I still failed it, not sure by how much b/c they didnt tell me. I go tomorrow morning for the 3 hr test and I was told to carb load 3 days before, lots of water and nothing to eat after midnight. Someone in here brought it to my attention that its not how much sugar you eat, its how ur body reacts to it. Which, i think makes sense and if we avoided sugar, the whole test would be pointless. I stressed and stressed over it so much that anything i wanted to eat, i didnt. So, i was eating less than normal in fear of failing again until that chick told me that. Plus, the doctors office never mentioned anything bout not eating sugar. So, ive been eating what i want, hopefully I pass. Alot of ppl say that most do fail their 1 hr but pass their 3 hr test. I hope that holds true for me!
My hubby works two jobs, a full time and part time. So, i hope its enough to keep us on our feet. Ha, thats funny! I wonder if we will go over or go early? lol! I guess if i dont pass my 3 hr test then its possible I may have her early, a friend told me they like u to have them by 38 weeks if u have GD. Not sure if everyone doctor does that. I been having this feeling though that I will either have to be induced or have a c section. Felt that way for awhile now. I already have high blood pressure(had it before getting pregnant) so I guess if that gets out of control that could probably end up making me have her early. As long as she healthy tho, im ok with it. Maybe you will know what ur babies name should be the first time u see him. Some ppl wait til then, my mom did. Cause like i said she changed her mind on Brooke, then my cousin was born before me and took the name Brittany, so I wasnt named til birth pretty much.
Well, before we got married I quit my job knowing that we planned to start a family shortly after. It just ended up taking 10 months to get pregnant. We like the idea of me being home so that i dont have to leave the baby cuz child care is not cheap. Please i dont want my child to see me running out the door all the time. I like being home to keep the house clean and to have supper ready for my hubby when he gets home. Nothing against working moms, thats just my thing for myself. The weeks seem to go fast for me though, especially once I got over the puking(9wks-16wks) just so happens that i love thanksgiving and christmas and this year is going to be even better, even though its going to be crazy with a newborn..but who doesnt want a early xmas present haha :) Thats a cute name for the boy and cute for the girl as well. Our lil girl is Brooklyn Leighann :) Brooke was going to be my name but mom changed her mind, its also my gma's favorite name so thats how brooklyn comes about and leighann is just what my mom picked. We wanted a boy really bad( was going to name him after my gpa, hes had a couple surgeries because of skin cancer and i know he wont live forever, and i knew this would mean alot to him) if it was a boy it woulda been named Brantley Daniel. Justin really thought it was going to be a boy, he never once thought it was a girl. Like a week before my anatomy scan i kepted saying it was a girl, sure enough it is. I couldnt picture things being any other way with the fact that its a girl. I love her a ton already!
I know that feeling. I wasnt tired the first trimester but the second one i have been( are we in the 3rd yet, its confusing...it still say im so an so weeks when someone ask cause the month confuse me too!) I found out the other day that i didnt pass my 1 hr glucose test and im anemic...makes being tired a hell of alot worse. I dont work, i stay home. Thank god! What name do you have picked for your baby?
