bethany replied to Anna's discussion 'Induction scheduled for May 29th...ahhh!!! Need some advice on L&D' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Relax!! I was super nervous too. I was induced at 38.5 weeks, I was left on my pump and allowed to monitor my own glucose levels. I was checking my bg every hour or so. Once contractions really started I dropped my basal to about 50% perhaps lower…"

bethany replied to Rose Joelle's discussion 'High glucose levels ? ? ?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Take a deep breath!! Stress just makes it worse. We've all been there...high blood sugars define diabetes. I made myself (and my husband) crazy over those high blood sugars. Especially in the beginning when your emotions are all over the place…"

bethany replied to E. Louise's discussion 'Low carb diet in pregnancy' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"The oat thing is weird. I couldn't even look at let alone eat oats or popcorn during my pregnancy, but now I eat oatmeal almost every morning without much of a fluctuation. I have really fallen off the healthy eating wagon. There were so many…"

bethany replied to Roop's discussion 'Were you induced?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"I was induced at 38 weeks after an ultrasound measured my son big...they were estimating somewhere around the 9lb 8oz mark. We went in on a Friday night. They used cervedil as a "ripener" (I hate that term). I was already 70% effaced prior…"

bethany replied to Erin Huff Carper's discussion 'Who helped manage your blood sugars during pregnancy?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Congratulations!! My advice would be to trust your own instincts. You have a long road ahead of you and you must trust the people you're working with. I too got pregnant with my first at 31 (he's now four months old) and I've been T1…"

bethany replied to E. Louise's discussion 'Low carb diet in pregnancy' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"I ate fairly low carb throughout my pregnancy (80-120g) even though it made my nutritionist crazy. I was so sensitive to carbs that I had to cut out most grain products entirely. If I did eat many carbs with a meal it had to be balanced with fat and…"

Super_sally replied to bethany's discussion 'My "big" baby...' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Don't worry too much yet. The measurements can be way off. I have heard of them being off by 2 - 3 lbs. The lasty u/s I had before delivery they said my baby was 9 lbs. Turns out she was only 7 lbs. Best to to into labor naturally if you can,…"

Kristin replied to bethany's discussion 'My "big" baby...' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"We had a big baby and no genetics to blame (9lb 5 oz at end of 38 weeks). There is a lot of controversy among patients about whether we should accept induction or c-section just because we have diabetes and the baby is measuring big. My OB-GYN said…"

Megan Ritter replied to bethany's discussion 'My "big" baby...' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Its hard when it comes to "big" babies for diabetic mommies b/c it isn't just the size. It's the way the baby's body is shaped- if a diabetic has a big baby, there is a higher risk of the baby not being able to fit (yikes!).…"

Saffy replied to bethany's discussion 'My "big" baby...' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"We're tall too and my sugars were in good control. DD1 was 34+1 and 6lb3oz, DD2 was 32+1 and 3lb15oz - weight wise bang on but she was super skinny and very long. Here's the question I ask them... if I wasn't diabetic, how big a term…"
