I realize it probaly is not un-common for 30 something year olds to become pregnant. For ten yrs i was told i would not be able to become pregnant, so to much of my suprise last february learned i was pregnant and my husband and I counted it a blessing! In my first tri-mester learned that i had pre-gestational diabetes, i was prescribed to check my blood sugar four times a day and to watch my carbs and was put on a list of things that i could have...a week after i was put on glyburide to control the high numbers that i was recieving when i took my blood sugar.
After two weeks the pill was split b/c i started having lows like 52 and 66. After a week of spliting the pill, i still had lw numbers so i was taken off the medication. For two weeks after not taking the medication i began to have extreme headaches, keeping me in bed or on the couch and light and noises just made it worse. Since i do not feel i have rested great at all and tried passing it off as just apart of pregnancy i guess. It has been 13 yrs since i was pregnant, so i cannot even compare this pregnancy to my last. Now my blood sugar numbers range from 70-90 and my headaches are not nearly as bad. But, i still cannot sleep good.
My question is this i guess ...if they diagnosed me with me pre-gestational diabetes in my first trimester, i have taken the medication and now have been taken off, what does that mean? Do i still have the diabetes? I was told after the baby was born they would run another test to see what my blood sugar read. In my first trimester they had me going to a cardiologist, a high risk ob and a regular OB. The cardiologist released me b/c my heart murmur sounded fine and claimed during pregnancy it can become louder. But everything was fine. When i called my ob office and told them of my bad headaches the nurse said id have to be seen, so i made the appt and when i got there the midwife told me that they couldnt do nothing for my head aches, id have to see a reg doctor, well a regular doctor refused to see me b/c i am pregnant. So i left the office frustrated and since my head aches have eased some .
I didnt know where to put this but wanted advice from a christian mom. I will be 20 weeks this coming wednesday ..I go to the High risk doctor on thursday, and then to my regular ob on may 2nd. I should be finding out the gender on the 2nd of may..:)
