I have Gestational Diabetes! I don't get it. It's not like I eat super junk foods and tons of sweets, but my results came back so high, they wont even do the 3hr test. I see a nutritionist on the 9th, but until then I need to meal plan something to keep my glucose down. Keep in mind I'm vegan, butttt, I have a friend coming over on Saturday for 3wks and I might include eggs and some dairy (cheese and yogurt... no milk) back in there. Any ideas of what to make, that would not cost a fortune either?
It would have to be low carb and low/sugar-free. Go!

Don't worry it wasn't your fault. I was athletic and ate healthy for the most part before and during pregnancy. 24 weeks came and I got diagnosed with GD! I couldn't believe it because I had none of the risk factors where as my sister in law had all the risk factors, had a major sweet tooth and was eathing sugary foods several times a day and she did not get GD.
You might not have to go low carb. I was told that I could have 40-60 carbs for lunch and dinner and mine has been managed pretty well with that diet. I have had a few high numbers but they were mostly due to me either being at a party or not paying attention to carb counts. You also have to watch fruit because the sugars with in can spike blood sugar if you eat too much. Also, upping your protein intake will help control it. My friend who was borderline only had to increase her protein intake and her numbers were all normal.
