So for my first two pregnancies I had an OB and an endo who both took care of their respective fields. This time we live in a different state and I am going to the university hospital. My endo told me she is completely comfortable with the MFM doctor taking care of my diabetic control during pregnancy as he specializes in it. And up to this point we've done great.
Now the frustrating part. I am 23 weeks and hadn't met his midwife as she was always out. So the midwife I did see handled my insulin prescription. I guess my pharmacy had a question about the script and called. They ended up talking to the midwife I've never met and she changed the whole prescription because "she has never seen a patient take so much insulin". Needless to say instead of a 3 month supply I only received enough to last me a little over a month. I was (am) furious.
So I met her on Tuesday and she still reiterates that she's never seen anyone take so much insulin. Which really offends me. I've had type 1 for over 17 years and not once has an endo even blinked at my insulin intake, even while pregnant. I'm really contemplating sending an email stating that I've been happy with the control we've achieved but if my insulin needs are overwhelming in any way I'm more than willing to go back to my endo for diabetes management who will have no problem prescribing the correct amount of insulin.
Am I being crazy or would you be ticked, too? I love the OB and will put up with this lady for the few months I have left but holy hell did she get under my skin. Sorry, rant over!
