I just finished 3 doc appts. Got to get them all done when I am in town!
First one was the perinatologist. We had another u/s and cardiac echo. All looked good. No down's markers found either! He is still a boy and growing right on target. The doc was less concerned about placental insufficiency after todays scan. We do another scan in a month.
Second was with the endocrinologist and I definitely have gestational diabetes. I have been monitoring my blood sugars for the last month and will be starting metformin. I will most likely need to start insulin in a month or so.
Third was the regular OB appointment. It was just a quick check since I spent over an hour with the peri this morning. The good news was I have only gained 2 lbs this pregnancy and I am blaming that on my knee brace!
Phew! I feel a lot more relaxed about this pregnancy now. My BP even got lower each appt today!
Yay for all of your good news, but sorry about the GD. I will probably have it too (I get tested in about two weeks) so we can exchange recipes and food ideas if you want.
