Km-so sorry to hear that!!
I have lots of tips that have helped me.. Im happy to give as much help as I can!
On my phone ATM.. But have posted previously about it if you want urgent help!
It's very manageable and you get extra monitoring (I try and stay positive!!)
Will message you after the Chrissy season.
Hang in there!! Xxxx
I had gd too and it wasn't that bad for me. Had to go to diabetes class and was quite amazed but what I learnt there and how some foods I thought would be good was actually crap for sugar levels and vice versa! I actually lost 2kg being on diet control - was quite impressed!
Thanks MrsSimmo I'm a little confused what to eat, they said cut back on Carbs but I hardly eat Bread or Pasta. I mainly eat fruit, so I'm not sure how much fruit to eat or what fruits are bad to eat?
They said to exercise, which i can't do much of as i have Placenta Previa. Do they tell you to exercise because they assume your overweight? I don't think I can afford to lose any weight.
Just a little confused, wish they had more time to talk to me. A bad day to be told at 4.00 before they leave for Christmas Eve they really didn't tell me a lot if information.

Meat, salad and veg are great and you can eat lots of them!
Snacks - around 20grams carb
