Where Has This Week Gone...

Wowzers this week has gone crazy fast. It's Thursday morning here, and I feel like I haven't had a chance to catch my breath yet. Half of this week has been spent hanging around at the hospital for various antenatal appointments. Today is going to be the longest. Three separate appointments. Starting at 8.15 and I've been told not to expect to be done before 1pm at the earliest. Sounds like joy to me. Yep I tend to get sarcastic when I am frustrated.

I have an appointment with the GD specialist today and I have to admit I am anxious of the outcome. My levels are much worse than they were with Ryan, yet I'm at a different hospital and feel like I am going to have a fight on my hands to get anywhere. With Mia I was borderline and she was born 9lbs1oz (4.122kg) and I had a really bad hemorrhage that required a transfusion after her birth. My small body struggled with recovering after birthing a large for me baby. FYI I am barely 5ft. So size is a concern before you add in the GD.

With Ryan I had to fight to be induced at 40 + 4, he weighed 50grams less than Mia. My placenta was very old and barely functioning when he was born. He had low sugar levels for the first few days, got jaundice and was under lights and monitored every 2 hours. 

This time around my GD is worse than with Ryan, diet control doing zip. My test results are actually worse since doing diet control. Go figure. I just want to know what the plan of attack is going to be. I don't know the doctor I am seeing today and just don't know what the end result is going to be. And I can't stop myself from feeling anxious about it all.

Props to you if you have read through all of this. It doesn't make a huge amount of sense, but I just needed to get it all out. So thank you for baring with me.

Hopefully by tonight I will have a plan of action and some answers. I'm praying for that hard.

Good luck. I am sorry that you have to fight for what you know is the right thing to do. Geez, they should listen to you.
