Dr. Issues Resolved

I had three appointment this morning at they went well.  I am feeling so much better about everything (If you missed what I was upset about, this post will catch you up.)

First up was an ultrasound.  Munchkin was not cooperative so we didn’t get see a nice profile or get a picture but we did get a great shot of her foot.  We also found out the the placenta in now 4 cm from the cervix so that issue has resolved itself!  It wasn’t a huge issue to begin with but it’s not to know that we won’t have to worry about it at all.

The second appointment was with the nutritionist.  She gave me some more ideas for my nighttime snack (quesadilla with beans and cheese, yum!) and told me that walking after dinner could help my fasting numbers too.  The good news is that the fasting numbers are now coming under control.  I’m very, very happy about that!

Last up was the centering appointment with my midwife.  The nurse who runs our group mentioned to me that we need to talk about my next session.  Then she came over and said that I should talk to the midwife about being able to stay in the 2012-05-24 20.28.12centering group and she didn’t see any reason why I couldn’t.  When it was finally my turn for one on one time with the midwife I mentioned that I had GD and that the OB I saw last week said I couldn’t come to centering anymore.  Her immediate response was “Of course you can keep coming!”  I was super happy to hear that!  She ended up going to talk with that OB and she was confused about centering.  All of my care will continue to be under the midwife and I don’t have to see that OB again!  So my appointment next week with the OB turned into a walk in appointment with the midwife so she can see my log.  If it is decided that I need meds, she’ll work with the OB but will still be taking care of me.  She did mention that I will be induced at 40 weeks if Munchkin hasn’t arrived on her own.  It didn’t bother me as much because I have a relationship with her and trust her and her judgment.  I still don’t want to be induced but I am ok with her doing it.  If she isn’t on when it’s scheduled she’ll make sure that we schedule it when another midwife is on as there is no reason why I can’t have a midwife deliver munchkin.  I walked out of that appointment feeling so much better than I have since I got the GD diagnosis.   

It’s also hit me that in about 7 and 1/2 weeks or less we’ll have a baby.  We’ll be meeting our little girl and we are so excited for that.  Wrapping my head around it is a whole other issue and it just stops me in my tracks sometimes!  I’m not nervous for labor yet, just excited.  We’ll see how I feel once it starts….

  1. I'm so glad this all worked out for you. I was concerned about the OB trying to man handle you into not seeing your midwife anymore so I'm super glad that was resolved! It makes me happy that things are going well with you and munchkin :) 7 1/2 weeks is no time at all!

  2. Thanks! My DH was right and I shouldn't have worried but I seem to do it anyway. I'm working on it. And you're right, 7 1/2 weeks is going to go by so fast! I'm looking forward to it though:)

  3. I'm glad things are working out and you are feeling more positive about the situation.  That is great that you are still able to be with the provider you trust.  

  4. I'm glad to hear everything is coming together for you.  I have faith that you'll be able to control your numbers and everything will work out just fine.

  5. Good for you for speaking up!  I'm so glad that you are able to still go to your midwife.  It's important to stick with a doctor you TRUST.   And I'll be crossing my fingers and toes that you don't go past your due date and have to be induced!

  6. Yay! Glad things worked out for you, so glad you get to be with someone you trust!! and 7 1/2 weeks! aww that'll go by so fast!

  7. Thanks! I had an appointment with the midwife today and it went really well:) So glad I still get to see her!

  8. Thanks! Just a few fasting numbers out of whack and those are the ones that I have no control over. boo. But we're monitoring them for another week:)

    How's your little one doing? Are you getting into the swing of mommyhood?
