Well as it turned out I failed my 3 hour glucose test…so I guess that means I have gestational diabetes. I must say that I am bummed! I really tried so hard for 2 weeks to watch my diet. I cut out all juice and soda. I limited my sugar intake and if I ate any sweets it was sugar-free. In fact, I only gained 1 pound in the last 2 weeks. Oh well…
Now I have to attend a consultation and a 3-hour class at the hospital. I guess that means I’ll have to restrict my diet and start pricking my finger to test my blood sugar levels. I am not looking forward to this at all, especially since it is the holidays and as you know I really enjoy baking. Maybe I need to search out some sugar-free/sugar substitute recipes.
I’m going to try to enjoy my Thanksgiving meal while watching what I eat. I think it’ll be tough…especially, resisting dessert. I wonder if it’s okay to have just a tiny bit of dessert?
I’ll post an update after I attend my consultation and my 3-hour class.
