  • Updates: I'm doing really well this week. Last week I thought I was doing terrible but the endo said I was doing good. I thought he was going to recommend induction at 39 weeks but he was fine with my numbers.

    GTKY: I eat yogurt for breakfast every day. If it isn't Greek I add in some seeds or nuts. I don't eat meat and can't stand eggs. Pb is good but I can't eat bread in the morning so I don't know what I would put it on.

    Success: I went shopping in the states on the weekend and picked up tons of low carb stuff. It is hard to find much here. I tried dream fields pasta and I've been eating ww cookies and cream bars every night.

    Defeat: I went to 5 guys during this shopping trip for the first time. I told myself I would be fine if I didn't have fries, but then I couldn't resist. It was soo good though.
    DD1 9.15.10  DD2 11.2.12
  • Updates : doing well. My new hmo group still thinks I'm hypoglycemic not diabetic but there's no way to tell without a 3hr glucose test and I'd rather just stick to the GD program since I'm comfortable with it and don't mind testing. I am only checking T, Th and Sat so that's good

    GTKY: ground pork...I make it with sausage seasonings and shredded sweet potatoes. Yum

    Defeats: rubios fish tacos. I spiked high and had a major sugar crash after
  • Hi everyone, I'm new to this check-in. I was just diagnosed with GD on Friday. The doctors tell me that I "just barely failed" the tests.  I am 29 weeks and my EDD is Jan 4.

    I've just started monitoring my glucose levels and they are super low...2 hours after meals they are in the 90s. Is that good or too low? I see my nurse again on Monday so I will ask her about it.

    I teach high school and it's been exciting trying to prick my finger inside my bag behind my desk in the middle of class, or running out into the hallway. No one has noticed so far!

    Updates: Still a newbie at this. Smile

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast? Hard boiled eggs, peanut butter. They are the easiest.

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share? Not yet, still learning the ropes.

    BFP #1 July 2011 missed M/C--D&C @ 12 weeks.


    BFP #2 Dec 2011 blighted ovum--(D&C @8 weeks-Trisomy 16).


    BFP #3 LO arrived on December 29, 2012!










  • Hi - I was just diagnosed with GD yesterday and had my diet class/received my testing supplies this afternoon.  My "official" DD is 12/29 (based on LMP), my DD based on the 8 week dating ultrasound is 1/2.  For my 3hr, the numbers for fasting and 1hr were fine, but just continued to go up for the 2hr and 3hr draws.

    Updates: How are you doing this week? Also, if you have any questions, list them here and hopefully someone will answer!  I have lots of questions but will take some time to sort through them!  Any general advice is appreciated.

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast?  I'll probably alternate between hard boiled eggs and protein bars; not much of a meat eater in the morning.

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share?  I tested 93 in my class 2hrs after lunch -- happy to have a number within range for my first test.

  • Hi ladies, I am also new. I technically did the 3 hr test when I was around 8 weeks since I am a higher risk and was dx with an elevated fasting. I had to monitor my sugars for a little while and things were good. I had to re-take the 3 hr test this past Thursday and was dx with GD (which I figured would come sooner or later). I am due January 23, 2013 and can't wait to see this LO.

    Updates: How are you doing this week? So far so good. My biggest problem that i have had all pregnancy is that I have no appetite so my dietician was not happy that I am eating so little. I have lost 10lbs since getting pregnant becuase of no appetite.

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast? two eggs usually scrambled with cheddar cheese and one piece of wheat bread with butter.

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share? My numbers have been great so far, so I hope they stay that way, the biggest challenge is forcing myself to eat meals and snacks.

  • Updates: How are you doing this week? 

    I completed my first week and a half of testing and have passed all my one hour after meal tests but struggled with my fasting numbers.  The last two days I have passed them though so I am hoping I have figured out the secret... Lol I haven't.

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast? 

    I don't like eggs in the morning, they give me heartburn.  I have struggled with what to eat.  PB also gives me heartburn... I just eat it anyways.  I wish I ups have yogurt in the morning! 

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share?

    I ate a piece of cake minus frosting at my shower during afternoon snack this weekend and still passed my test after dinner!

  • Hi ladies - I am diabetic already, and since I am pregnant, I figure this will be a good check in for me.  I am almost 5 weeks pregnant with our second child and I have strong belief this is my girl :)

    Updates: How are you doing this week? I keep having good days and bad days.  I am having some food aversions which stinks because it is already hard with nausea and trying not to eat too many carbs.

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast?  Egg omelets are my go to.

    I am starting 10 units of insulin at bedtime.   Tonight is my first injection, I am so nervous to do this but I know it is what is best for the baby.  I really hope this helps with keeping my fasting below 90.

    I was just diagnosed this week at 12 weeks. I had it my last pregnancy so they tested early this time around. I had prepared myself for this but I still cried (although not as much as last time).

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast?

    Last pregnancy I ate quiche for almost every breakfast after being diagnosed. It was one of the only things that didn't spike my numbers in the am. I could not have any bread in the morning. 

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share?

    After learning about my GD diagnosis, I ate Arby's for dinner.

  • Updates: How are you doing this week? Doing ok...getting really tired of dealing with all this, but since we don't know for sure if I have GD or Type II, I'm trying to keep myself from getting to excited about it ending in Dec

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast? I don't like to eat the same thing all the time so I alternate weekly..I tried Thomas bagel things and laughing cow cream cheese last week and did well, this week it's a Hungry Girl egg mug and some cider doughnuts I picked up (I only get them once a year and I wasn't going to miss them now)

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share I am able to eat a cider doughnut for breakfast as long as I have some eggs for protein (I have to up my insulin a unit, but they told me that was fine to do). I feel like I have a pretty good handle on how to work things I want that aren't necessarily GD friendly into my diet on occasion, like wontons from this hole-in-the-wall Chinese place, but I really look forward to being able to eat a meal without having to worry about the carb count..I just hope it happens like I want it to

  • Hi I introduced myself he 19 th but wanted to join in.

    i took my 1 hour glucose test at 12weeks and had a240 after an hour. I had know idea why they were doing the test or what it meant I was blind sided into the whole GDthing they did bloodwork and my a1c came out6.1 so they can't tell if I was diabetic before pregnancy I have no idea since my endo usually is checking my thyroid function and I should add may and June were ridiculous I was dieting, going to the gym 4times a week, was graduating from school, bridal showers wedding honeymoon, and when we got back from my honeymoon approximately a week later boom! Surprise baby! It's my first and I'm 33yrs old. I've was diet controlled for a couple weeks, then put on glyburide. Last week I was put on insulin because my fasting numbers were in the 100's &120's instead of under 90. I'm starving most of the day and literally wait for my next eating experience.:( 

    as for morning protein I use the portioned egg beaters only half a portion,and wow toast with no sugar raspberry jam!

     

     Failure ummmm not this week but last week I couldn't get the idea of a Burger King whopper out of my mind ( not a usual choice for me trust me) I ignored the craving Monday and Tuesday then had a friend sneak one over and ate it for lunch Wednesday. ( Only the burger no fries )Was so guilty halfway I removed the bread and just ate was was left. 2hrs later test was123 so not that bad. 

  • Updates: Have been doing the meal plan/finger poking for about 5 days now. It's not as bad as I thought, I am able to fit most of our regular meals into the plan with minimal modifications.

    Successes: Went out to dinner twice and had great numbers after, definitely reinforces the choices I am making.

    Defeats: slice of pumpkin bread at work yesterday. I LOVE pumpkin baked goods, it was so hard. But one slice is better than like 5, right? :)

  • image Regne:

    I've just started monitoring my glucose levels and they are super low...2 hours after meals they are in the 90s. Is that good or too low? I see my nurse again on Monday so I will ask her about it.

     

    90s are awesome.  Less than 70 is low according to my doc.  I'm jealous of your numbers ;-) 

  • Updates: Went on a short weekend trip again.  I remembered to take snacks with me this time.  My numbers were still out of whack.  They haven't changed my meds for a couple weeks now, but I've had several high numbers again this week in addition to the weekend ones, so we'll see what happens.

    GTKY: I eat eggs the most for breakfast because it's the easiest, but I'm starting to despise them.  The other day I had a piece of toast with ham and cheese melted on top with tomatoes.  That was a nice change.

    I tried having some sugar free jelly with my toast, but it spikes my numbers every time.  I was able to have some low sugar apple butter that I bought when we went to the pumpkin patch.  Yummy!

  • Intro: My name is Stephannie, EDD February 25. Diagnosed GD at 12 weeks based on A1C 5.6 and Fasting 91, no GTT. Diet/exercise controlled so far.

     

    Updates: How are you doing this week? Also, if you have any questions, list them here and hopefully someone will answer! I'm doing alright, had trouble at the beginning of the week because doctor told me I wasn't eating enough and now have an extra growth scan to check on baby

    GTKY: What is the protein you eat/like the most for Breakfast? this morning I had nuts, I have issues with mornings because my mornings are super early and I can't eat eggs without throwing up

    Any defeats/successes with food this week you want to share? didn't take into account the tortilla in my burrito on Monday, so that made me high, also got a bit discouraged because my whole day seemed high, struggling to eat more without raising sugars.

    Hope you ladies have a lovely week!
