I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes last week and my OB has decided that because of all of my "issues" (GD, MTHFR, and donor embryos - which I don't think are huge in themselves...) he wants to take every precaution and is sending me to an MFM tomorrow morning. I was freaked out by being labeled as "high risk" but I'm trying to get past the label and remember I'll be getting even better care now with the co-management by an MFM. I've already been to a nutritionist and have been following the diet for a week. My numbers are not great even with diet changed. Ugh.
So a couple of questions for you all...
For those of you seeing an MFM for anything, how has your experience been? Is anyone going to one for Gestational Diabetes and if so, what was your first appointment and follow up appointments like?
And last, does anyone know where I can find a forum or thread for GD support? Holy moly it's overwhelming and frustrating not seeing my numbers be good no matter how hard I try! I tried the High Risk board but it looks like other ladies are asking the same because there doesn't appear to be one created.
