Hello everyone!! I'm Chrissy and generally a member of the Oct DDC. I am a momma of 4 going on 5 (obviously ). I have been a high risk mom twice before with my youngest children (ages 5 and 6) being GD c-sections.
I went to the ER last Wednesday for god awful pain in my back and hip as well as light spotting. I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection that they gave me some pretty gnarly anti-biotics for. They did a transvaginal ultrasound that my hubby was allowed to see but I was not. He said he saw a walnut looking thing that looked like a sunny side up egg so I am happy about that.
I went to my regular OB yesterday and they referred me to a high risk doctor across town because I am showing signs of GD already as well as this being my 3rd section. They also tried to do an ultrasound with a less advanced machine and I thought I saw a glimpse of the sac, but of course our little Globby wasnt ready to be seen, so nothing was conclusive. They are "treating" me like I am pregnant since it was still too early to see anything.
To wrap up my long drawn out story, Im hoping for a relatively normal pregnancy (as normal as any multiple high risker can ask for), and I am always looking for advice on how to better take care of myself while my pregnancy advances. Google is certainly NOT my friend while trying to research the best ways to help myself and my baby.
I am pregnant with my 4th...This is the 3rd that I have gestational Diabetes with and the on insulin for all 3 as well...I am 20 weeks pregnant today and have been on insulin since Feb.2nd...My problem seems to be my fasting numbers in the morning...They are not really high, but being pregnant they want them under 5.3mmol or 95mg/dl...My morning numbers range from 5.3-6.0mmol...so nothing high but still have to take insulin for it....
When I eat it does not seem to be out of control yet...I mean I LOVE my sweets...And I often have a cake or something for dessert and my numbers an hour after I eat are o.k...
I guess just trying to watch what you eat is probably the main thing...
Welcome! I'm Beth, mom to Jim who was a preemie due to PPROM, and Maggie, who was full-term but because of her brother being early, my pregnancy with her was high-risk. I don't have any experience with GD so I'm no help there, but I'm still sending you best wishes for a nice uneventful pregnancy!
