Warning : this is a rant
Thursday, February 07, 2013
I'm tired. I'm tired, I'm frustrated and a whole lot of other thigs I'm having trouble putting in words. I had another doctor appt today. At the ultrasound about a week ago, baby was measuring 3lb, 11 oz. supposedly on the big side for his age, but not overly big. Ok. So the high risk dr wanted me to get a blood test for gestational diabetes since I can't so the traditional 3 hour sugar test, due to my constantly Needing to eat about ever 2-3 hours most of the time.
So I go to the ob-gyn today. She says the test is inaccurate when you're pregnant which is why they wanted to do the other one. She's also unhappy cause I have lost 4 lbs. I had a bad bought with the morning sickness the last few weeks, but I've still been eating in my calorie range 90% of the time. I'm also eating when baby or I feel hungry. (Or what passes for that now; it's changed since I got pregnant.) so instead of the test the other doc wants, she's sending me to a diatician who will treat me as tho I am diabetic - when the obgyn says she doesn't think I am as my first test was only 2 points high- and have me do my own blood tests.
I also don't understand how she expects me to GAIN weight when I'm eating in the parameters she gave me; I got the weight I am by eating over 3,000 calories a day. I can't wait for baby to be born; I HATE dealing with doctors so much; they never explain things, even when you ask them.
Ok. Enough ranting. Thanks for lists ing everyone. Have. A good night.
