Today, we had our 37 week appointment. I was tested and diagnosed with GD at the beginning of my 2nd tri due to a variety of risk factors. Since the beginning of the 3rd tri, the doc has been talking about inducing at 39 weeks. Originally, I was very against the idea, but I finally got used to it. Well, today, she told me that since I have been able to control my blood sugar numbers with diet alone, that my weight and blood pressure are good, and since the growth u/s we had last week showed the baby average and not "the jolly green giant," that she is not recommending inducing me at 39 weeks, but waiting to see iwhen I have the baby on my own, but that we probably won't talk induction again until at least after 40 weeks. Mentally, I know that this is all good news and it's great that my baby is doing so well. However, emotionally, I'm disappointed as I had it in my head that I was going to get to meet my little girl in 2 weeks and now it's a wait and see game. Again, I know that this is good news and I should be very happy, but, well, can I be happy and disappointed all at the same time????
