My doctor told me today that she wanted me to stay on the GD diet plan forever, whether or not I tested positive for diabetes after delivery. This seems pretty strict to me. Did anyone else have their doctor tell them this? I get that I'll have to watch my diet and be careful, to decrease my risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the future, but do I really have to measure and carb-count every meal and snack for the rest of my life, with no indulgences?
ETA: So far, I'm not on meds or insulin, and I'm not having any trouble keeping my blood sugar levels under control with diet alone. I could see being super-strict if I was having trouble controlling the diabetes, but I'm not, so why can't I have a milkshake after I deliver? *pouting*
