I met with a dietitian on Friday afternoon. My mom went with me.
I have to start counting my carbs. I'm only allowed so many for breakfast, lunch and dinner and my two snacks. Yeah, I have to have a snack now. Like I'm 5 or something.
I have never been one to count calories, carbs, or anything like that. So, to have to do it while I'm pregnant seems a bit backwards to me.
I know that Button is #1 and she is worth it. I've been doing what I am supposed to do. I just can't wait until our baby girl gets here. 10 weeks. 10 weeks. I can do it.
I have to check my blood sugar when I first wake up and one hour after every meal. Sometimes it is too low now. So, I'll talk to the doctor when I go back Friday. Maybe he will just say, "Whoops, we made a mistake. Here are some Oreos." But probably not.
Sometimes I think, this gestational diabetes thing isn't so bad. And then five minutes later I think, this sucks, I'm starving, how is my baby ever supposed to grow.
The good news is I can have all the meat, cheese, and eggs I want. I love string cheese. When I get hungry, I just eat some string cheese. Yesterday, I pigged out on bacon and eggs. It was amazing.
I can have most of the things I had before, just not as much.
Hope you are all having a great week! And for the love of God, stop posting pictures of muffins and brownies.
