ok, so today I got a call from the hospital that my dr. sent a referral to.....I KNOW that certain things have to be checked out because of my age & diabetes..BUT......first of all, this hospital is almost 2 hours away from me...
my first appt is 12/11 for the counseling, then 12/21 for an NT scan....
My only gripe is....I have been diabetic for 8 yrs. I control it with diet, my averages are in the NON diabetic range , I went to "counseling" with my last pregnancy at another hospital....now I have to do this again...so someone can go over the food groups,tell me to drink juice when my blood sugar is low.... & basically tell me everything I already know!!!...... I have explained this over and over and OVER.....why do I have to go through this again???? I know it is a small price to pay, but it is a PAIN!
anyone else ever HAVE to go through this when they already Did??
GEEZ! That DOES sound like a pain! I'd be pretty firm and let them know that you've already jumped through those hoops and that you have ZERO interest in doing it again. Be a little snotty, but not too snotty. Explain that you're 2 hours away no less! I've never been in that predicament but I do have the habit of being impatient/snotty in situations like that.

lol...I tried to be a little snotty...and it hasn't worked....yet
I just dont see the need to go for the diabetic stuff.....and have NO idea what to expect for the genetic counseling....
I guess they'll just keep telling me about all the risks since I am of "advanced maternal age" they put it so politely!
Dee you know I love you and LOVE the fact that you are loud and proud that being older is not a reason to not have a baby. That being said - the phrase "advanced materal age" just made me spit up my water I was laughing so hard. Is that really what they said to you? I can't even believe that. Too funny. I am sorry you have to go to this boring two hour away diabetic thingy but look on the bright side - you are going because you are preggo!!!! Yippee!!
