As if it isn't enough that we have to endure high risk pregnancies, we get denied life insurance because of them!

I had gestational diabetes WHEN I WAS PG WITH QUADRUPLETS. As you probably know, the more placentas you have in you, the less able you are to metabolize serum glucose. So, of course I had gestational diabetes!

My husband's insurance company just denied me coverage because I'm "pregnant and have a history of gestational diabetes". I'm pregnant with a SINGLETON this time! I'm not overweight, I don't drink or do drugs, they really couldn't ask for a better candidate than me. Plus, I PASSED my 1-hr glucose test!

I could maybe understand if I failed the 1-hr. But I didn't. I'm just so furious with this company. Grrrr. I just finished writing them a letter of rebuttal. It seems so wrong they can deny someone for just being pregnant!

Thanks for letting me vent.
