Just wanted to post about my one positive GD experience. I HATED the diet, but now that it is all over I can say that it was a blessing in disguise. After being diagnosed at 28 weeks, I only gained 4 lbs (a total of 36) but my boys got bigger every week. They were 6 and 7 lbs when I delivered and by my 2 week PP appt. I had lost ALL but 4 lbs I think that the diet heled me and my babies stay healthy. Not gaining too much weight helped my body carry them to 38 weeks. And now that I have fully indulged in the holiday season, it's time to get back on track!!!! Good luck ladies and remember there is a means to the end!
