PostSubject: Goodbye good food   Wed Dec 30, 2015 8:33 pm

On Christmas Eve I received the wonderful news that I have gestational diabetes. I had to meet with the nutritionist, learn how to use my lovely blood sugar meter and find out what I can and cannot eat and how much of certain foods I can eat. Let's just say not the greatest Christmas present ever received. So it has become a low carb diet, well to be truthful a no carb diet until I see my doctor tomorrow as my blood sugars have been WAY too high. Let me tell you it is not the easiest thing in the world to live on a low/no carb diet, specially for someone that loves pastas and breads. I am only allowed 30 to 60 grams of carbs per meal. So lets say I want a hamburger and fries, well the bun would be 30 grams in itself and 15 crinkle cut fries is approximately 30. If I want pizza I am only allowed 1/8th.
Going out to dinner poses issues in itself as not every menu lists the carb count so it becomes a fun guessing game.
I know that with gestational diabetes it is 95% guaranteed that it will go away after the baby is born but with my luck I'll be in the 5% that it doesn't and it will be poking fingers and extreme carb counting for the rest of my life. As of right now, yes it is a pain in the ass but I have to do it for the health of my daughter. It really sucks though!!!

You can do this, especially since the hubby would gladly sacrifice such foods along with you. And just think of the feast you'll enjoy when the diabetes goes away!

What you mean the hubby is to doing this with me?? Heck I think he has been eating the carbs I cannot. If/when this goes away I am planning on having a big Brother's Three sausage, pepperoni and extra cheese for my first meal and a ham Stromboli for the second!!!!!
