I had a spinal fusion surgery in March of 2012.
In November, we learn that I am pregnant with ds, due in July.
My OB office has a rotation of doctors that you have to see through the course of pregnancy. One doctor has been hung up on my weight since day 1. At first appt, he stated that I was still overweight and I needed to have a 0 weight gain goal. The next dr stated that normal weight gain of 20-30 lbs would be ok.
Next appt was the first dr again, and I had lost weight. But he still said that I could lose weight and still have healthy pregnancy because I wasn't an ideal weight to start with. Please note this was after losing almost 50 lbs.
I am now 31 weeks. And I have gained 23 lbs. this same dr was on my rotation again. This is the first time I've seen him since the above mentioned appt.
He told me today that not only was I irresponsible for getting pregnant so soon after a back surgery, but I was still overweight and was fat. All of my prenatal testing has been normal. No complications at all. EVERY other dr is pleased with my pregnancy except him.
Even though I passed the 1 hr glucose screening. He referred me today for the 3 hr test because my baby is measuring 1 wk ahead. I was told by another dr any measurement within 3 wks is normal and it fluctuates.
The dr even went as far today to say if I wasn't "fat" he would be ok with the first results being within normal range. And accused my family of diabetes, heart disease, etc. One uncle has diabetes. But no one in my immediate family had any health problems.
Other than my weight, I am healthy. I don't get why this one dr needs to point out with every sentence that I am not at an ideal weight and he thinks I'm fat.
