37 weeks pg and lots of contractions so I saw my obe and now got admitted to the high risk pregnancy unit where they're trying to stop the contractions. Want baby girl to wait at least another week (say that although 37 weeks is considered 'term' it is still too close to premature and so they want to keep baby inside.
So far not bad! They are allowing me to monitor and control my own diabetes (endorsed by my Obe). They did tell me they wanted to monitor my bs - but they haven't done that yet and I've been self monitoring.... but all meds are up to me.
Am on diabetic diet, but was able to tell them that is 'low carb'. They don't quite get it - mashed potato last night (though I said no starchy veges) and fish. This morning was omlete and broccoli, beans and carrots. Pretty good, aside from the pineapple juice they also sent.
Don't know how long I'll be stuck here (if I were my dr I wouldn't want to discharge me)... but it shall be interesting..
