Hi ladies- I'm about 345 pounds and just found out I am pregnant with my second. The first was a c/s, although I was about 60 pounds lighter for that pregnancy. Anyway, I went to the doctor yesterday, my first time with this physician, and I felt like all he saw was my weight. My BP was 144/90, which is high, I know. He prescribed BP meds. He ordered an A1C test and a 24 protein urine test, even though I don't have diabetes and didn't have GD with my last pregnancy. He said we should plan on a c section, and I told him I really wanted to attempt a VBAC, he said because of my weight, my BP, and my "small pelvis" he would recommend a c/s.
I'm just feeling so discouraged. We hadn't planned on getting pregnant until I lost some more weight, but here I am and I'm trying to be excited, but I just feel like I'm only going to be seen as the fat patient. There are lots of other doctors in my area, but none of them are too VBAC friendly, and I really don't know where to go to find one that's fat friendly.
I like in North Texas- if anyone has one in the Grapevine/Fort Worth/Denton area.
Anyway, I'm just feeling discouraged and upset.
