So I saw the OB yesterday, and even though he said my blood glucose numbers are good, and he doesn't anticipate me having to go on insulin because I didn't have to with my last two, they will still induce me between 39 and 40 weeks! I refrained from informing him that 'No, They will not!". Figure we have lots of time for that argument in the future
I cant believe that I got through 2 full term pregnancies with GD and nobody even mentioned induction, and now I feel like I am being ganged up on with this one. I really dont feel that the risk is that great, as 2 other Drs were fine with me going on my own before.
Anyways, I did get to see my babe So cute, had the hiccups. Baby is measuring about 3 lbs at this point, which is big, but not huge. OB said he anticipates about a 9 pounder, which is right on with my other babies.
I will have to go back for another ultrasound at 34 weeks to check size and then go for 2 NST's a week starting at 37 weeks. Personally I think the NST's are also a waste of time (was not sent for a single one my last pregnancy), but I am willing to go along with it, as I feel that it will give me more peace of mind and keep me from being pushed into something I dont want if it comes to an argument about induction.
Anyways, for some reason this appointment calmed me down, even though he didnt say what I wanted him too. I think it just solidified my resolve and at least this Dr seemed to know what he was talking about, unlike my reg Dr.
