Gestational Diabetes

Hi,
I just got back from the docs and I have developed Gestational Diabetes:(...feeling so low.. she has given me a diet chart with all the food I do not like and a big no no for anything sweet ..... and thats all I have been wanting to eat!!... she said that we'll test again in two weeks if it not under control then will have to take Insulin......:eek:

Anyone have any suggestions on how I can make sure I get it under control..... appreciate your inputs..... thx

Sorry don't have any experience with that, but just wanted to let you know that my thoughts are with you and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you can keep it under control!

My friend had GD when she was pregnant with her first. Said the diet was super sucky BUT the up-side is she only gained like 17 pounds because all the foods she ate were healthy.

Hi Mari,
My list of what I can eat is very different as I live in India and our food is generally made with spices and oil ... so no oil not tasty!!! basically it is difficult to explain coz the cuisine is sodifferent. Luckily however I can eat grilled chicken and fish with salad.... anyway I started walking today and am already determined to beat this...

Thanks everyone for your kind words...
