Appt today...MFM referral

Had my appt today. heard the HB right away. My blood sugars are going up and I was referred to an MFM to handle it. This was a surprise, my regular OB has handled diabetes for the last 4 babies....except when I needed an MFM for other reasons. They want to see my in 2 weeks after the MFM next week...not to surprised as I had appts every other week from 14-24 weeks and then weekly or more last time. makes life crazy though!

Re: Appt today...MFM referral

Pre-existing?

I do not have pre-existing diabetes, but it doesn't take much extra pregnancy stress to tip me into being diabetic.

I would rather be on insulin that anything else. Oral meds make me sick and I can keep much tighter control with the insulin. When I said that to the DR she looked at me like I had 3 heads. LOL!! Insulin really is not all that bad.

Hope you can keep your sugars under control!

I had GD with 2 of my other pregnancies so I guess so :-) I'm also on metformin for PCOS but obviously that isn't doing it. No problem though, as many shots as I have done for IVF...that little needle doesn't bother me :-)
