This counting carbs and all that stuff is making me crazy! :) It's pretty complicated. But of course I have to stick to it. If I was just diabetic normally, I don't know if I could really stick to this stuff... but as it is for the health of my baby, of course I'm following all the guidelines. But man, I wake up starving my butt off (no more middle of the night eating) and end up feeling hungry all day. I've figured out that I can eat more of the foods that have less carbs, but it seems like those foods are less filling... I always end up starving about an hour after I eat.
And the worst thing about it is giving up all those sweet treats! :( It really sucks to watch the whole fam eat ice cream and not be able to have any :( its torturous! ;)
The bright side is that hopefully I will only have to eat this way for the next month and a half.
The downside is so many more appointments! I will start weekly Dr. Apt's next week as well as weekly ultrasounds, non-stress tests and meetings with the nutritionist... as well as the contuned urine testing every morning for ketones and blood sugar testing 4 times a day... at least I don't have to take insulin!
That's been my week... starving and testing ;) I've been so busy that I almost forgot it was our 5th anniversary today!! How awful is that? Last year we were even busier and things were really crazy and I did forget until my mom called to remind me. I meant to go pick something up for the both of us today - as I know my husband most likely doesn't remember... the gift for 5th anniversary is wood... hmmm....
