I don't plan on doing it often, but some days I just really feel like a chocolate shake, especially when I'm feeling nauseous. My levels are always within the normal target when testing but if they go way high if I eat or drink something that I normally wouldn't, I'll definitely stay away until this little guy is born!
Also, is Chinese food out of the question?
I go to my doctors tomorrow so I can ask them as well.

Chinese food fine. Chocolate shake, are you crazy! You could have one of the chocolate fiber bars. I like Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidants Dark Chocolate Almond. I put them in the back of the fridge so they are very cold. The fiber and the nuts make it so your sugar doesn't go up like a milk shake would. You might try half a bar at first and see if that's ok. The fiber would be good for you.
If you search on google there should be websites with things moms with gestational diabetes should and shouldn't eat.

I had to spend the last few weeks before my baby was born in the hosptal. I was on a lower salt diet and there were all these commercials on tv for great looking food. The pizza place across the street would bring new parents a free pizza and the delivery guy would walk by my room. The nurses would order pizzas. I could smell pizza and it smelled so good. Torture. We had moved right before I got sick and then my husband left me so I didn't have any visitors. My ex had my two other kids but they were sick and couldn't come to visit. I didn't have anyone to sneak me food.
I know it's hard but you should be fine once the baby is born and you can eat what you want.
