Changed doctors immediately

So I went to a doctor who said I was high risk for stillborn because of my weight and needing to be tested for GD 😐. Not to mention he said only 12 pounds max and was like if u already gained weight from when you’re pregnant then u need to not gain a single pound. I really felt the fat phobia like he looked at me and pre-diagnosed me and guess who blood pressure was normal and not even pre diabetic . Like ladies you do not have to put up with that . I got another doctor who said I’m healthy and not once made a comment about my weight whatsoever. Like I hate that prejudgment and funny thing is I lost over 100 pounds from being basic 400 pounds and getting to my low 200 pounds and even then I didn’t diabetes and I was much bigger then . Than I am now 😐. Don’t settle ladies

I was told by my consultant no more mcdonald's for every meal even tho I don't eat it and had one nurse pat me on the tummy and say we may not be able to see baby thru you tummy as you have a rather large tum tum while patting my stomach not to mention being told I'm gaining to much weight which may cause still birth even tho at 32week iv not gained any weight that isn't just baby xx

It's such a systemic issue. I'm being told I can't deliver at my local hospital due to my bmi .. zero other concerns. No high BP, no diabetes, healthy baby. Add to that I've delivered 3 healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies at this hospital previously with a higher bmi. Now they expect me to travel 2hrs while in labor.. this is my fourth baby and my last one came in under 3hrs. So basically they'd rather risk me deliver on the side of the road myself than see me locally because of a stupid chart.

I’m so sorry you had that experience. That sounds horrible. I was nervous when I went to have my first OB visit, she was great and made me feel so comfortable. All the blood work came back fine, she said gaining 10-20 pounds for myself was ideal but also it’s okay if I lose 10 pounds. Glad you found another doctor that fits better for you.

Not gaining weight during pregnancy???? So basically they are recommending losing weight which is actually quite dangerous for both baby and mum. That's ridiculous. Good on you for seeing through the dirt and firing them
