Hi all, I don't know whether I am right here, so if not, please let me know and I will move the post to the type 2 forum. I was diagnosed with type 2 in Summer 2015, with healthy HbA1c readings since Autumn that year, due to LCHF/keto, exercise and IF. I surprisingly got pregnant (stopped IF), 18 weeks today . It was quite a marathon with all the appointment with midwives, doctors, etc., and after not caring for a long time (no retina photos, I had to ask for HbA1c tests etc), suddenly my diabetes appears to be a very serious issue. I am still having perfect control, measuring 7 times a day! The pregnancy is progressing nicely. Nevertheless, the doctor said, we will probably need to induce at 37-38 weeks anyways, because a higher risk of stillbirth, and connect me to a monitor Is this really necessary? I know they need my consent and cannot handcuff me to a bed, but I want to make informed decisions. How do I know this is necessary and not just a box-ticking exercise?
