So I saw my Dr for the first time today, as he has been away, and he insists that I am only 16 weeks along, and is sending me for a dating ultrasound instead of my big one, cause he doesnt believe I am far enough along. When I told him when my last period was, he actually said 'Oh, so you are a lot further along.....if thats right'. I was not impressed, and he's got me kind of worried now about measuring so small...at least I can be pretty sure there is only one baby in there :/
He also wants me to eat an extremely low carb diet due to having gestational diabetes last time. I am not convinced that is the best thing for the baby.....I will have to do some research. Im not impressed though, cause last time my Dr had sent me to the diabetes clinic by now......of course he doesn't really believe I am that far along.
He is sending me to get my blood tested again though, and including a few extra tests as well, like iron and thyroid because I complained about being tired. One thing he has always been good at is sending me for any tests I think I should get
I feel like he is treating me like an idiot about being pregnant though. He went on about how women here (he is from south Africa) eat too many carbs and thats why we have such big babies and with GD I will have a huge baby and all sorts of complications. If he had bothered to check my file he would have seen that I was completely diet controlled with my other pregnancies and that neither of my other babies were huge, and neither the babies or I had any complications.
Thanks for listening to all my complaints if you made it this far. I am off to research this no carb thing. Hope things get better from here.
