I had a Dr.s appointment to follow up the standard GD test they give you (the 1 hour). I am 30 weeks. I took it last week. As I have been reading through this thread I am beginning to realize that my Dr. gave me no useful information.
I asked him what the numbers were. He said that the threshold for GD started at 7.7, and I was an 8.3.... In relation to what! I asked him about diet, he told me that if the 2 hour test was positive that I would talk to a dietitian. He also said that I might have to go on insulin for this. He didn't even talk about diet and exercise....
Argh... This brings up another frustration, not his fault obviously, but my fault.... I was obese when I was pregnant with my first daughter... No problems for the whole pregnancy, vaginal birth with an epidural and an epis. But he has watched the weight pack on since then. Never said anything. And now I have been talking to him about diet and exercise he says, well, lets just deal with that after the baby is born.
Having a baby is a big change, I need help before that as I don't know if I can manage so many changes at once.
He dropped the GD on me so quick that I didn't have a chance to talk to him about the anti-depressants like I wanted to. I am pretty sure it is PPD flowing into pregnancy depression, which will be PPD again.... It has gotten so bad that I don't want to go to church anymore because being around large amounts of people freaks me out... I have to step out of the room to catch my breath to be able to deal. Which is terribly funny to me now because of how much I USED to love being around people.
<--- how much I loved being around people.
I hate Canada... I want to move back to Colorado.
Sorry for the rambling.. I think I am more upset about this than I thought.
