When I was GD during my #2 pregnancy a couple of years ago I found myself really feeling overwhelmed and alone despite having nutritionists at a diabetes center assist with my meal plan and testing. I hope newly diagnosed have more success than I with educators (mine lacked creativity in the guidelines of foods they thought I should have at meals and knowledge of ingredients or foods that weren't store prepared with labels (I cooked meals from scratch).

I was especially frustrated that typical breakfast foods would set my #s climbing while any other food, plainer than I would have fixed, would allow me to have a cookie to satisfy my sweet tooth for a dessert.

What do you change at meals/with types of food from what you thought was "normal" to maintain control over your GD #s?

I am pregnant with my 4th and this is my third pregnancy with GD.
I always have the same thing to eat for breakfast. 2 toast with peanit butter and a coffee with sugar...Sometimes an hour after it is too high and sometimes not...Weird...
I have noticed sometimes for dessert I would have a piece of cake and an hour after my levels were surprising low....You just never know...It is never the same. I know the nutrionist said in general it is best to avoid all cereals even the healthy ones cause they tend to make your levels higher...
I have a hard time cutting out sugar cause I LOVE it!!!
