Re: [IP] OB APPT AND MY BG'S :(



After reading many replys to this original message... I too have to add my
two cents.  I guess I am very confused as to why so many of you tell her to
forget her docs comments and keep up the good work.   Yes, blood sugars
under 125 are great.  BUT... I am a type 1 mom of two kids who I pumped
throughout my pregnancies with and my docs goals were 60-90 for me.  It is
sooooo important you stay under 100.  You have much less chance of preterm
labor that way.  I was under 130 the whole time and my pregnancies were
great until the 30 wk point. At that point I ended up in the hospital for 4
wks muscle relaxers to ease up the contractions.  Both my kids were early
and had to be in the NICU because of this.  They say I was dehydrated
because my sugars were over 100.  Even tho they were still under 130.  My
A1c's were only 6.4.  I know when you feel you are doing your best with your
sugars its hard for a doc to come down on you...but listen to them.  They
are doing the best for your baby.  And that is all that is important.  Jenni
