So diet hasn't controlled my numbers well enough and I'm getting ready to go pick up oral medication.. The issue is my midwife says it can cause light headed/dizziness. Now I'm paranoid to drive after taking it and I'm here alone with all the boys.. Very frustrating!
Yesterday I had contractions pretty rythmic but about 12 minutes apart and it never progressed.. I was nervous though. Then this morning I woke up and have had the worst diarrhea all day long when for three months going to the bathroom has been less than pleasant. Trying to make it until the EDD because my midwife says babies from moms with GD tend to have lungs that mature more slowly and surfactant issues which I'd like to avoid.. BUT then they don't want me to go over my EDD because of size. Our last was nine pounds without GD. I'm not really sure how to make any of that happen.. haha.. Don't come out until now but don't stay in past then either! EDD is the 16th. Honestly I had been hoping to make it to at least Thanksgiving with the hopes of still having an itty bitty when John made it home.
I'm slightly frustrated with the whole GD diagnosis because while my fasting sugars are always pretty well over the 90 cut off, generally 120s, my after meal numbers are never high. I've had no excessive weight gain, my bp is a steady 98 over 48 to 50, and I don't seem to fit into the mold of any other symptom other than the slightly higher numbers. Maybe I'm just in denial..
And really I don't know the reason for this post other than to vent because I hate laying it all out there when I do get a phone call from John!
