  1. no i'm not comfortable counting carbs. matter of fact i suck at counting EVERYTHING. i eat when i'm hungry and avoid stuff that makes me feel disgusting. that's about it. i balance my foods every day and try not to overdo 1 type of food. i drink MAYBE 1 pop 3 days out of the week, and maybe 1 glass of juice 1 day out of the week…. yet i still just got diagnosed with GD. :/ i eat out ONCE a week, trying to keep eating out to only TWICE a MONTH, yet still got GD. :/ My weight gain is on track and so is baby's growth, yet… here we are. I don't get it. The diabetes wasn't enough thus far to leak over into my urine — the glucose has been at 0 as well as the ketotones, which i was told by a nurse i work with would be high if i had GD >> sooo I don't know what's going on for me to "have GD". hopefully recipes like yours, Jess, will help me eek through the last couple months of pregnancy if the Docs are right, which I think they are erroneous IMO, but whatever LOL i've never been one for "dieting". I don't "Diet". i CHANGED my diet entirely about 8-9 years ago, and eat intuitively mostly, balancing out types of foods & just not overdoing anything, never overindulging. over-eating 1 type of food makes me backslide BADLY, so "dieting" & "restricting" doesn't work for me. it makes my cravings worse.
    Worst of all, most of the foods on healthy lists are expensive – peanuts alone are too expensive much less healthy nuts. We have a budget of $90 and below on our grocery bill, which i try to stretch as much as possible, so always staying away from processed boxed pasta meals or what have you isn't always easy. other than that, i'm not ALWAYS eating pasta, and barely ever eat bread. i don't get a whole lot of veggies unless they are canned, same with fruit, because to have those on hand don't always work out— until now. Pregnant with my 2nd, I am CRAVING salads, but buying all the salad fixin's is expensive too, you'd be surprised how it adds up. so i don't do it every week. i just BALANCE.
    I've been taking FISH OIL as opposed to eating fish since so many fishes have mercury levels i'd rather just AVOID than worry. and i take my prenatal. i have NO other health problems, no problems with my BP and no other meds i'm on.
    anywho, i'm probably pre-diabetic/borderline more than anything, but i go to my 'education class' on monday & the OB on thurs after 3 days of testing my blood 4x a day.. so this should be interesting. i half feel like they are just trying to swindle me out of my money, i'm that borderline. my first glucose test, the Dr in the group i'd gone to, said it was okay to eat before taking it… WRONG. but still, 131 when the healthy range ENDS at 130 (literally) isn't bad for having eating at 5:30 am, drink that drink at 8:30 and get blood drawn at 9:30 – now is it? LOL Then my 3 hour test failed at hour 2 and 3 — at hour 2 it was 1 point (only 1 point) above the healthy range, and hour 3 it was 5 points over the healthy range. Still— not too bad considering. That test, i indeed fasted & did as told. I'm a stickler like that. Yet here I am with GD. i don't get it, but whatever.
    PS my first son — -i had NO GD, my wt was on track as was his growth, and he weight 5 lb 1 oz at 41 weeks gestation and needed inducing. had a C-Section due to "not progressing" (was only 2 cm for 24 hours or more). he was looking to the side, too – which doesn't help. and my pelvis was too small. so i'm getting a c-section THIS time as well simply b/c my pelvis is too small. in any case, i have a feeling this baby will be under or at healthy weight no matter what, because i don't overdo stuff and DO eat balanced already, as much as possible anyhow, seeing as how with my son i ate out 2 out of 3 meals, drank 1-2 pops a day EVERY day, and DIDN'T get GD (I had him at age 33 and i'm 37 now). So the ONLY risk factors I SEE, are i was slightly over weight at pregnancy's start & i'm 37. otherwise, everything i've done this time is healthier than with my son (who isn't overweight, is short & skinny, & has a good appetite but doesn't overeat & we don't even ALLOW lots of carbs if we can keep from it, candy, not too many fats at all, and NO soda and NO juice. he doesn't even get juice boxes. he only drinks water & milk (which i do too when i'm home).

  2. These are almost ketogenic diet. Is there how much carbs needed for pregnant women of certain height or weight during gestational diabetes

  3. If you want to get rid of diabetic issues and want to change to a much healthier lifestyle, then you can depend on this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). As I`ve see clearly, I discovered how fat impedes cells from feeding on glucose. With “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Search Google), I was able to stay away from the destructive effects of diabetes to my whole body, and eventually, demise…

  4. Great tips Jessica– Obviously I am not Pregnant— But I am trying to lose weight by eating low carb. Great helpful info… I am terrible at counting carbs !
