So a little background, I usually love my family Dr, but we have had some issues since I got pregnant. He didn't believe my dates and insisted that I get a "Dating ultrasound" which annoyed me, then at our last appointment he pushed me into getting my 2 hour glucose test done, even though I failed the 1 hour, have a history of GD with both my other pregnancies, and have been testing my blood and obviously have it! I was not happy about it, but finally got the test to get him off my back. Luckily, for me, I was already referred to the diabetes clinic by another Doc while he was out of town.
So this appointment he agrees that I have GD (DUH!) and then proceeded to tell me that I will need to be induced!!!!!! What!!!! I have never needed to be induced! At this point, my sugars are totally diet controlled and where for both my other pregnancies! I can see in 3 months if I lose control of them talking about getting induced, but at this point........I don't think so! He back pedaled when I stated that had never needed to be done before, and said that it was a 'good possibility' that I would need to be induced, but not for sure. I am anticipating a fight in our future!
The worse part is that I cant switch Drs. I live in a smallish northern town and the health board here wont let you switch unless the new Dr sends them a form stating they will take you, but no Drs will do that because they get in trouble if they 'steal' too many patients from other Drs.
My Dr is sending me for a consult with the OB though, who I fought against seeing my last pregnancy as he is has a pretty high c-sec rate, but I am almost hoping that he will take me as a patient just to get away from the Dr I have now! I do not trust this man to be making decisions about my birth while I am in labor. And DH would just go along with anything the Dr wants.........Argh! I am so frustrated!
Sorry, I just had to get that out
