My last update was 2 weeks ago and since then I have had 2 appointments.
The first was with the midwife for a routine check up. She checked my blood pressure and then tried to listen’s to bub’s heartbeat.
Bubs was very active mashAllah and the midwife would find it and then bubs would be on the move. I appear to have a right active little thing growing away mashAllah. In the end the midwife gave up. As she had heard baby moving she was not too concerned about hearing the heartbeat.
I told the midwife that the diabetes was beginning to get me down but she tried to reassure me by telling me that my levels are not very high compared to some ladies with diabetes. So that is good.
My second appointment was with the dietician.
Well, all I can say about that appointment was that it was a complete waste of time.
I went to the appointment thinking that the dietician would be able to give me some ideas of what to eat and help me with a meal plan.
I was living in dreamland.
As soon as I got to the appointment she asked me, ‘So how can I help?’
Ummm….I’ve been referred to you so shouldn’t you know?!
She then just went on about reducing portion sizes, carbohydrates etc. I knew all that anyway. So I didn’t really get anything out of the appointment.
I phoned up my diabetic nurse and I am now on medication after every meal. I am hoping this will be enough as I really don’t want to increase it further or end up on insulin.
I am seeing the diabetes consultant and medicine team on Thursday so will see what they say.
