First sorry I have not been around. I did just try to get to most of the posts I missed. My mom had knee replacement surgery last week so I am taking care of her. DS has not had a great week and I have not had my usual help with him. I feel I am feeding, taking care of and doing therapy on my son....and then turning around and pretty much doing the same with my mom She is being great though but it is alot of work. Then we have family visiting her so I am cooking and cleaning more. And every day this week has been appt for me, DS or my mom. Friday Jacob has dental surgery, Sat my mom is going home with my dad and DH is going to take the trailor out to the lake. I have respite coming on Sat and Sun for DS so I get some much needed rest and just get to be on my own.
First my Internal Medicine Specialist callled me two nights ago. She said she was sorry there was a mishap with my message and that is why it took her days to call me back. Basically she referred me to the Perinatologist....they booked my ultrasound. It was marked urgent because of my history. Just no one called me until they were reminding me. She confirmed that all looks great.
Then I saw my OB Thurs afternoon. Baby is great..I am measuring great...heartrate was in the 160. She too said she was sorry that there was such confusion...she really had no idea what was going on as no one told her either. She too confirmed thall all ultrasounds and test looked good except for the Gestational Diabetes. I failed the one hour not the two hour. Not by much but enough to consider me to have GD and I am going to a diabetes clinic next week for 4 hours. She was not to concerned about it though. She said follow the diet they give me and they will do further testing. My doc is very happy with my blood pressure. Over all she said I was going good....real good. Which is great...by now in my last PG I was having problems. I did not gain weight...still up about 6 pounds in total. I also talked to her about tying my tubes when she does my c-section. It does not increase healing time and only takes minutes so I will probably be doing that.
So it is a little over whelming now. I see my OB every 2 weeks...Internal Medicine Specialist every 3 weeks.....Perinatologist every month and now the diabetes clinic. Not sure how often I see the. I am glad to have a great team but wow...it is alot of appts and tons of money in parking. And of course they are all within a block of each other but no one does appt on the same day so I can try to pair them up. I know everyone just wants me to go to term without any problems this time....good news is they all feel optimistic that I will. Hopefully all the communication will be better from here on out.
