  • Everything that the PP mentioned. :)

    It takes a bit to get adjusted, but it won't take long. Do you have an appointment with a dietician or someone who will help you get started? Will you be checking your blood sugar at home?

    I went to the nutritionist yesterday, learning the monitor tomorrow, seeing my ob on monday, and seeing a specialist on wednesday. Busy next few days. Hopefully doing the diet and monitoring will help and no meds.  Any good recipe ideas??

  • I have found that most things are still ok to eat, with a few exceptions of course. When we have my favorite chicken salad sandwich, I use a "carb smart" tortilla instead of a regular one or regular bread.

    I really want spaghetti but I absolutely HATE the taste of whole wheat pasta so I'm choosing to forgo it until after baby arrives. However, you might take a look at the carb load on some of those, if you want pasta.

    I can do fish fillets, with cottage cheese and fruit, and totally stay within my carb limits for supper. If I want milk, I just don't have fruit.

    I cannot have milk or fruit for breakfast, so that's tough for me. I really don't like meat with breakfast but my carb limit is so low at breakfast, I don't really have much choice. Eggs are always a good choice, packed with protein and more filling than other choices.

    What are some of your favorite meals? I might be able to help you still have those meals, with a few adjustments. :)

    Not sure if it is available in your area, but Dreamfields makes a low glycemic index pasta. A nutritionist recommended it to me, and I had already had it previously because I had a coupon for it. It was actually pretty good! I could hardly tell the difference. I'm soooo hungry for mac and cheese, so I'm putting it on my next shopping list.
