Gestational diabetes, My boy could be early & Basically shitting my pants.

January 28, 2019

 

Real talk people ... Pregnancy hasn't been easy but it has such special moments that makes it completely worth it. Feeling his strength grow inside me is an insane feeling. He has gone from tiny little bubble movement thats you can almost confuse for gas to soccer punches in my ribs.. mental. 

 

I have gestational diabetes and I have attended a midwife appointment and a hospital clinic appointment for more information. It is completely COMMON in most pregnancies so there is literally nothing to worry about. I am in good hands and I have all the information that I need, including a dietitian on hand.  

 

It just means that I will have more scan (yayyy) and appointments to keep an eye on the little one and they want to check to see if I can carry him the full term of up to 40 weeks. I was first tole told that the hospital will want to induce me as close to 37 weeks as possible and then they said 39 weeks. This was before my most recent scan.

 

I have had a scan on Monday 21st January and it terns out my boy is only weighing in around 2pounds &13 on average, this means he's fully on scale so I am happy. As long as he isn't measuring large then the hospital wouldn't have to be induced. 

 

 

Scan at 28.6 weeks pregnant.

I still don't feel pregnant, I mean I don't know how your supposed to feel but the time has flown by so fast and I feel like my body is going as 4 times the speed to my brain. I wake up in the morning and sometimes forget i'm pregnant .. I thought that was such a bad thing until I spoke to quite a few people about it. You worry about being judged but then come to realise that most people had the same feelings and thoughts and its normal.. it is always GOOD TO TALK.

What scares me the most? 

Most people will be like "Oh they do it hundreds of times a day" however the thing that sticks in my mind is having to having a c-section. I do NOT want one, I think theres a lot more risks and I can't rely on myself. I know even with a natural birth you have the help of nurses ect and there are still risks but a c-section to me is literally having to rely on other people and trust is a major thing for me. I don't know if its because I have always been quite independent that makes a big factor in this or not? I literally want to be able to do it myself because it will make me feel more comfortable and calm. I personally think I would freak out if they told me I had to go down for a section.

 

I know though that when the time comes I will want my boy out in the safety possible way and i'm more than over thinking it all at the moment BUT again this is normal! :)
