I have passed 24 weeks and baby girl seems to be doing well. So glad to have passed that milestone!
I had my regular endo appt yesterday. TSH was .7 and A1C was 4.9
I swear my endocrinologist secretly wishes I had sugar issues. This is like the 3rd time she has requested my A1C! Every time it comes back normal but she is stuck on the fact that my grandfather had diabetes.
She has kindly pointed out that since I have a family history of diabetes, I’m older (37) and slightly overweight that I have an increased risk of GD. She also likes to point out how much weight I’ve gained and makes a face like “ooh you are gaining too much”.
For the record, I gained 3 pounds in the last 5 weeks and about 20-21 pounds to date at 25w3d. My MFM has never said anything about my weight gain. So my skinny little endo can deal with it.
I don’t know how much I gained with H. I stopped getting in the scale at some point because it was depressing. But after she was born I lost all of the pregnancy weight and than some. So I am not terribly worried about the fact that I’ve gained 20 pounds so far. I tend to gain more in the first trimester and it seems to slow down. I’m not really eating more so I figure my body is going to do exactly what it needs to do.
