So today I was booked in to see the diabetes midwife/ doc.
Had my blood pressure and urine checked- normal yeah!
Then the midwife listened to the heartbeat- fine yeah!
Then she wanted to feel the baby, she couldn't as I had a load of fluid, more than usual, so I was whisked off for a scan, haven't seen baby for seven weeks, wow how he has grown, amazing, he also weighs 2.5 pounds so he is a bit bigger than most, but the fluid was fine, its that he decided to swish up towards the front of my belly so fluid was pushed up. My placenta hasn't moved and is still anterior. He is also breech, he as max 10 weeks to turn
Then I met with the diabetic team, I have confirmed gestational diabetes, I have I take three Metformin tablets a day and alter my eating to a low gi regime. I also have to monitor my bloods 4x a day till my next appointment in three weeks then if there is no improvement I go on insulin:(, good side of this I get scanned another three times till I'm 38 weeks. Also I'm not allowed to go past my due date, I could be induced at 38 weeks, 11 weeks away!
So that's it!
I'm now knackered had my last McDonald's and I'm off for a rest now
