I was diagnosed when I was 28 wks. I'm having a hard time at the beginning during breakfast time, b/c I LOVE to have breakfast. I was over 120 almost every morning before I go to the dietician. My lunch and dinner are always good. AT first I'm afraid to eat fruits and stuff, now I always include some fruit as snack or during dinner time. It's hard though, b/c all I eat is meat and veggies and bread. I crave pizza, pasta and other stuff. I know I can eat them, but only very little it's not satisfying. Its hard to find food to eat a lot of times and I can't drink any juice or soda :(. I'm 33 wks now and hanging in there, if I ate a slice of pizza I would need to walk for half hr to burn it off. It's all worth it at the end, I don't want my baby to be over weight, now he's 4 lbs and I only gained 10lbs so far from the pregnancy. I will do whatever to avoid insulin, testing myself 4 times a day is brutal!!!!
