Re: [IP] My trip to the ob/gyn



So glad to hear that all went well at the OB's office!  (Except the bad low
in the waiting room, which I'm sure was not fun.  Be careful of those lows
in your first few months -- many women find that they come on quite quickly
due to those lovely hormones coursing through your body!  :))

I wanted to let you know that my OB also leaves my diabetes care completely
up to my endo, and it worked very well for us during both of my pregnancies.
That's great that Dr. Gass and your endo have worked together before.  If
both doctors know and trust the other's work, you should be in good hands!

Are you seeing changes in your insulin rates yet?  Keep us posted!
