I have GD. I've yet to meet with the nutritionist but since I had it last time and have done Atkins, I'm pretty carb savvy. It's too bad that my body is in sugar withdrawal right now but that will pass in a day or so (I hope!).

I had GD with the past 2 babies and then transitioned into Type II diabetes after last babe
. I never had success with the diet and ended up on insulin. This time however I am very well controlled wth oral meds
. We are expecting little to possibly no insulin at all this time around...though we shall see. Good luck and if you need anything please PM me....I know it can be a pain in the butt more then anything else.

Ugg. Sorry about those of you with GD. I have to go back for my 3 hour test next week. Tuesday I believe. I have already tried it once. I ended up throwing it all up about 40 minutes into the test! BUGGER! I probably would have been fine had they not done a pelvic exam complete with speculum (which I hate and get all wound up) I got so wound up I ended up throwing up.
: So now I have to go back and do it again.
