So we see where we are, how close we can be and yet not know each other.

Wow--sorry that happened to you. I'm glad your baby is ok. I will not be making an appt with her....THANK YOU for responding on this wall!
Ashley, She may be a good high risk doctor, but don't trust her with diabetes. Before I got pregnant, I was a healthy person. During my last trimester I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and told to go to her. Looking back on what they "taught" me about diabetes, it was pretty bad. I went on insulin immediately, for about six weeks and luckily delivered a healthy baby girl. Well, she never ordered me to have any blood tests after i gave birth, and even after much insisting I never had my sugars tested once. They even discharged me when I told them I felt awful...keep telling me it was because of my hard delivery. Bam, four days later I was in the ER with numbers around 700 and am now a Type 1. She may not have given me type 1, but she has no knowledge of diabetes outside of gestational diabetes. And her "diabetes educator" was a moron (looking back). Since you are already a type 1 and know all about the disease, maybe you'd be ok and teach her a thing or two! Good luck!
Ashley, Whatever you do, don't got to Dr. McFarland at the North Central Baptist Hospital. I'm pretty sure I'm a type 1 diabetic because of her ignorance about diabetes. I wish I had a great one to refer you to, but all I know is who to avoid! Hope that helps. Good luck to you!
Hello! I'm actually in Laredo (couple hours sound of SA). Do any of you have (or know of) any excellent high-risk OB docs there? I had a couple from my endo but wanted to hear if anyone else had any recommendations. Hoping to get pregnant soon and deliver in SA :) Thank you!
