I was diagnosed with GD after failing my 3 hour, and have been on the diet and testing my sugar for 2 weeks now. My numbers are pretty much in the normal range, but some of my fastings were above 90 (never abover 100 though) and the Dr. wanted me to consistently be below 90. So she suggested exercise and such before bed, which I have found this doesn't bring my number down as well as exercising in the morning before I eat. I hope I am on the right track with this.
Otherwise, my question mainly pertains to what my dr. should be doing. Right now, I have no idea how big the baby is, my last ultrasound was at 19 weeks and she was measuring in the 50th percentile at that time. All I have been told is the Dr. won't let me go past my due date, and I will have an ultrasound at 38 weeks to check on growth. But with all I have been reading, it looks like other Dr's are much more proactive than mine is being and I feel like I should know a bit more. I'm getting overwhelmed with not knowing the possibilities. I have heard some moms who are being scheduled inductions at 39 weeks automatically and my Dr. hasn't mentioned anything about this at all. Is this normal? What are your thoughts/opinions. I have my weekly appointment tomorrow and will be 33 weeks on Friday. I just really want to make sure I keep this lo in as long as possible and keep her healthy. Thanks for your input!
