Sorry, I go for my test on Wed and fully expect it to be positive. I actually never felt different the last pregnancy with GD. I could certainly tell if I went way over the limit with carbs though. I did prick my finger 4x per day but didn't need insulin. Unfortunatley I found once I was diagnosed I ended up gaining weight because I had to eat so many times per day. Breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, evening snack 1 and evening snack 2. My snacks etc were all portion controlled. (I found cereal and milk the easiest snack). I also had a homemade egg mcmuffin for breakfast to get my protein in.

I'm sure we'll be chatting more about GD in the coming weeks as we all meet with the dietician and share secrets.

this time I am going to try to get smoothies in as a snack because it will be hot and miserable and I will like a nice cool snack.
