At 16 weeks, I had an early glucose test which I passed. Yesterday, I met with the doctor we call Dr. Crazy prior to doing my second glucose test. First of all, she told me yesterday without any good reason except we have to start worrying about premature babies at this point (even though every other doctor at every appointment has said baby is healthy and happy and there aren't any signs of early labor present!) that I should no longer exercise, take long walks, go shopping at the mall, have orgasms or intercourse! She seriously said she would write my husband a prescription that said "no sex until after baby!" WHAT?
Fast forward to today after my whirlwind appointment, and I find out my glucose test is barely over normal. The medical assistant said she was sorry, but Dr. Crazy wants me to have a three-hour glucose test. I have requested to speak with my primary OB, but I am very frustrated and have a hard time taking this doctor seriously after she basically put me on bed rest without any real reasons. She also did the same thing to one of my closest friends as well, which is why this didn't surprise me.
Clearly, making sure baby is healthy is my number one priority, and if this recommendation would have come from any of the other four sane doctors, I probably would have taken it more seriously. When the medical assistant (who I have been talking to for almost 10 years) is apologizing through scheduling this appointment, it really makes me second guess everything. Any thoughts and/or advice would be much appreciated!
