Re: Diagnosed gd as a scare tactic??
I'm sorry Mama but it does sound like there is some sugar problem going on there. I don't think it would be abnormal for them to diagnose you as GD given the information that they have. The good news is that it sounds like your doing everything right to control it.
However, I would caution you to get out of that practice now. Even with an official GD diagnosis the stress tests and ultrasounds seem really excessive. That to me sounds like bullying. There is no way I would consent to that. You originally wanted as little medical intervention as possible right? And they are bullying you into a ton of it and yes it does almost seem to be out of spite. You also mentioned earlier in the thread that you seem to have gotten that tone from them. With all the NST's and US's they can quickly turn any little tiny thing into a big thing, which will lead you to more interventions. Get out of there now!!! They don't seem to have the same birth philosophy as you and honestly driving 1 hour to a new dr. is not that big of a deal if you are treated with respect.
