iI also have pre existing diabetes.
Although my rude healthcare provider was the diabetic doctor.
When I first got pregnant I was referred for the diabetic in pregnancy team, and all were lovely except her.
At six weeks my HBA1C was a little raised at 7.2 and she told me I would need extra fetal heart scans as 'I could have seriously damaged my baby and caused holes in her heart'
I was devastated. I went home crying, I cried to my husband and mum.
Ii worried for weeks especially having to see her again.
I have managed my sugars throughout this pregnancy, to the point I'm having regular hypos.
I had the heart scan a few months ago and it was perfectly normal.
My baby is due 4th Aug, but will likely gave her around 21. July at 38 weeks.
Some healthcare professionals are not professional at all... It's their own personal opinion... Just tw@ts really.
I also have pre-existing type 2 diabetes. My A1C went from 6.2 to 5.4 and my Drs are happy with that and my sugars have been good. Had an US yesterday and baby is measuring at 34 almost 35weeks and I'm only 32. Dr said her belly is measuring at 36 weeks but that he can't really judge by that because that is normal for diabetics. I'm miserable and I feel like a blimp. I'm due aug8 but my dr has pretty much decided that I'm not going to make that long. He said he'd be surprised if I make it past 36 weeks. I'm sorry that they were unprofessional. I actually apologized to my dr and he said it's not my fault. Good luck 26th everything and it's nice knowing there are other people going through the same thing
Thank you both so much for your input. My doctor is lovely but this dr who reviewed US she's just rude and is making me feel like I'm not doing anything right and that my baby will be obese because of me which makes me upset. I think the opinion I should be concerned about is the diabetic nurse and my OBGYN. The 2 heart scans came back normal so far baby seems healthy. I've had contractions since Sunday nothing steady but I've been informed to keep an eye out and if I get 4 in an hour or less I've got to go to L&D. Wishing you ladies the best of luck I'm 32 weeks but baby is measuring at 34 weeks or so overall. My due date is August 9th so we'll see how far I get. Thanks again.
