I miss cookies.

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.

It gets easier I promise... =) I was a wreck after finding out I had GD but after two weeks I'm at a better place. I understand the diagnosis better, I eat better and I'm not beating myself emotional anymore. Good luck! We got 10 weeks or less left! Thank goodness...

She is worth it. 10 weeks will pass quickly and she may come early so get your bags packed!! Emma came at week 34!

i will not post any pics of the cookies I bought today which are NOT on my diet. Damn girl scouts.

So sorry love:( But being able to eat all the string cheese you want sounds like heaven! I'm eating some now;) Mmmmmmm---You're doing fantastic! It'll all be over soon and it'll be so worth every carb you turned down <3

Oh no this sounds like such a bummer! I hope you are able to find some yummy things!

Oh no! Well at least you can still eat eggs and bacon and such. Sadly, no more hashbrown casserole. Maybe there's a way to do it without using potatoes?

I think I could eat bacon and eggs all day Lol
Hope the next 10 weeks fly by.
