I'm kind of more focused on what I'm *not* eating
: : chocolate, port, sorbet, . . .
I haven't tested my blood sugar in several years, so I have this irrational fear that I'm actually diabetic and don't know it. I'm sure I'm not--I'm not overweight, I'm not a couch potato, and I have no symptoms. But they always say that GD in pregnancy is a sign of increased risk for Type II diabetes "at a later age." And I just turned 40, which until very recently seemed like quite a "later age" to me
So I'm eating smaller portions and combining fat and protein with carbs: banana with peanut butter; whole yogurt with All-Bran and fruit; cheese and Wasa crackers. I confess I've had a few of those Magnum ice cream things, too--they have so much fat, that must counterbalance the carbs!
I've got to pick up one of DD#1's prescriptions this afternoon, so I'm planning to scope out (and maybe buy) one of the blood glucose monitors while I'm there. I'll need it within 3 months, anyway, and I can put my fears to rest now.
