I've recently had my 30 week scan and it turns out baby has gone from 50th centile to 98th in 2 weeks and already weighs over 4lb and I'm feeling really horrible about it.
Consultant is now monitoring her growth and has said if it goes up anymore she'll have to be induced much earlier than we hoped (was due to be induced at 38w) as they don't want her to be exposed to my diabetes too much.
I have been trying so hard to keep my levels under control and have literally done everything they've asked me to but am still struggling to keep them within range and I feel really useless and like I'm failing her.
Basically I need to know if this has happened to anyone else and the baby just had a spurt and evened out again or if baby had to come early and what the outcome was. It took me 9 years to have this unexpected baby (we were told we couldn't have kids) and I can't bare the idea that I'm putting her at risk of being a preemie and that this strong little girl who has fought all the odds to exist might be getting harmed because I'm bloody incapable of doing this right.
Type 1 Diabetic, measuring large. Need reassurance.
