Little background, everytime I call my OB with a question I hold my breath because I get treated like I am dumb and or annoying. Now granted, I do call a lot (not like daily) but I am a paranoid FTM and have a lot of questions.
Fast forward to today, I haven't felt a lot of movement for a couple of days and was ot sure of the exact point that I need to be concerned about that, so I called. Well for starters, my finger hit a wrong button and accidentally dialed the private line, to which the receptionist got crappy with me about, like I did it intentionally.
So I ask my movement question, to which the nurse told me it was normal, because the baby is still very tiny and I am early in pregnancy. (Umm she weighs probably 2 lbs and I am almost in the third trimester, I don't consider that early or tiny).
Then I bring up the gestational diabetes and working on not eating as many carbs and she tore into me. She said "I told you not to do anything until you met with the dietician. You have no idea what you are doing and it is ridiculous that you are even trying to count carbs until you learn. You need to quit worrying so much about this, it's not good for you or the baby. GD is very common now a days due to the obesity epidemic, so just take a deep breath and do nothing. Do you understand ?"
Yes this is exactly what she said. For starters, I swore she said not to try to use my monitor until I learn how, of course I was a little frazzled for those first couple days after my diagnoses. Second, my father in law is diabetic and my mother in law is an RN. Pretty sure they know how to count carbs. Lastly, obesity epidemic ?!?! Excuse me ! I was not obese PP, nor am I now. Everything I have read says it's hormonal and genetic.
This leads to me what I wanted to ask. Is this enough that you would consider switching practices this late in the game ? Switching practices means also switching to a hospital 40 mins away. Would you file a complaint ? Or am I being an overly emotional pregnant woman ? I mean I was scolded so badly, I was almost in tears before I hung up.
