The meeting with the dietitian was great, she actually answered most of my questions just in her walk through with the class.
Feeling like I can do this, started testing my sugar yesterday and everything is on track so far with the diet changes, which makes me feel great.
Tracking is super easy with the Bluetooth link on the system I have so don't even have to write anything down!

Well I've been on insulin for 3 weeks now and still can't get my fasting under control!! Have been upping my dose, am on 16 units morning and night but still no good. Also now have polyhydramnios and baby is starting to creep up on the larger side so they are planning on c section at 38 weeks, poss 37 if things don't settle down! 😫

I know 😫😫😫
Was so gutted as really wanted a VBaC but I need to put baby's health first, not to mention I'm so bloody uncomfortable the thought of having this baby out in 5 weeks is pretty appealing! Have another scan in 3 weeks to see how things are progressing so you never know...

It's funny how the last few weeks are just agony... we always just want them out. I had a 38 weeker last time and she was a bad feeder, the BF clinic said it was just because she wasn't quite developed enough in the womb. So I want this baby to be 39-40 weeks... but I'm sure when my mw offers a sweep at 38 weeks I will jump at he chance XD

Same, my daughter was born at 38 weeks and was a lazy feeder! Will just have to see how things progress and check my fluid levels. Placenta deterioration can happen on insulin after 38 weeks so I think that's why they like to whip them out then, coupled with the polyhydramnios risks I think on balance I'd rather have him out!
