I don't like doctors!

Nothing personal I've just had some bad times with them. I got really sick last year and the doctors couldn't get it together and figure it out. They gave me all these different diagnoses and then would change their minds after making me treat that diagnosis. Long story short it sucked, Larin even called in to complain because they didn't give us one of my lab results for almost two months and it was an important one. So after all this I wanted to have a baby, I said I didn't care if I was sick anymore just no more doctors! Larin said if I went to this one specialist for these few more tests and if he said I was well enough to have a baby then we would. Obviously he said it was okay and frankly I have felt most of my symptoms from before have gotten less intense now that I'm pregnant... then the doctor had to check me for gestational diabetes. I have done that test before and knew from how I felt I wasn't going to pass. So I didn't pass and have to do the longer 3 hour test tomorrow and I know from past experience I am not going to pass that one either, but it doesn't mean I have diabetes just that my body is all weird! I have been a very tolerant pregnant lady, with mild mood swings but if they take away my CARBS, even when I know it won't help, I will not be very nice, not at all! Just had to vent, doctors need to listen!

I'm sorry about this. Hey, I had gestational diabetes with my 2 boys, and I'll probably have it my upcoming pregnancies whenever I get pregnant. I know how the tests are, and to this day I will not drink orange pop. If you do have it, even if you don't want to get rid of carbs you need to just eat it in moderation. Follow the pamphlet that they give you. Also, exercise, exercise, exercise. That will keep your numbers down. Both of these are what I did and I was able to have perfect numbers. I was the perfect patient for my doctor and he let me toward the end prick myself 1 a day and I was able to determine when that would be. So, good luck! I'm here for you!

Man Jess this is probably the last thing that you wanted especially since you have been sick your entire pregnancy! But I am sure it will be ok! I totally understand that you don't want to get rid of the carbs that is the best thing about being pregnant you can eat whatever you want right and it doesn't matter! Let me know how your test turns out! I'll be thinking of you!
