This is why I'm going to a midwife!
I just got back from my 32 week appointment and I am SO mad right now - might need some help talking me down off the ledge lol The OB practice that I go to is made up of a midwife and 4 OB's. I have seen my midwife at all of my appointments except for two. Now that i'm farther along she wants me to see everyone in the office in case I go into labor and she's not on call. Totally understandable. So today I saw one of the male OB docs and I was not impressed. As most of you know I have gestational diabetes but it has been VERY well controlled with diet. At my last appointment my midwife said I was the "poster child for GD". Well apparently this doc thinks differently. He went on and on about how I'm a high risk pregnancy and that if I dont have this baby by 39 weeks they are going to induce me. And then started using scare tactics about how my risk of having a still birth baby increases everyday past 39 weeks. SERIOUSLY?! I wanted to jump off the table and strangle him. I could understand if the baby was measuring big, if I was on insulin, if my numbers were out of control. But I have had NONE of that. My weight gain is actually right on track - he even said I could probably gain a few more pounds! UGH!
I also keep a journal of what I eat and what my blood sugars are so that I know what foods are affecting my blood sugar. My midwife loved that I did that - called me a rockstar. Well this guy was just annoyed by it. Told me all he cared about were my numbers and just to put them on one page - he doesnt need all the rest of the info. REALLY?! This guy better not be on call when i go into labor! I see my midwife at my next appointment in two weeks and I'll be real curious to see if she feels the same way as this doctor. I'm going to say she doesnt :) Anyway...that's enough of my venting, sorry to put you through that I just really needed to get it out!
But on a positive note my baby girl isnt breech anymore! :) WOO HOOO!!!!
