I've heard of having a protein snack before bed to counteract the dawn effect but never milk .

I stayed away from milk because at 12 carbs a cup seemed to high to me for a beverage, even one with protein. I also have lactose issues so it wasn't a big sacrifice.

You can do it! I had an induction and a c-section too. And I'm having another one. I know there are a lot of crunchy mammas on this board, but a healthy baby is all that matters!
Seems odd to add a bunch of sugar carbs in the middle of the night for high fasting...

Re: So I have GD

Why can't you deliver at the birth center if you're on meds?
I have GD. My midwife said that if I needed meds she would have a pill to give me that reduces insulin resistance, instead of having to inject insulin. She told me that if she put me on insulin, then I'd HAVE to deliver at the hospital, but on the other med, I'd still be able to deliver at the birth center.

God bless!

Re: So I have GD

Milk on it's own spikes my blood sugar. I can have it during the day with a protein, but on it's own I get a spike.

My before bed snack is something like... peanut butter on whole wheat toast. Or plain greek yogurt, mix in a little honey, a little cinnamon, and some chopped almonds.

Stay away from corn, potatoes, carrots and peas.

If you're in the mood for mashed potatoes... steam some cauliflower and put in the food processor with a bit of butter and a little cream and salt.. it's super yummy.

Boiled eggs are a good snack too.

Good luck mama!
God bless!

That's the rule here apparently Michelle.

Lots of ppl with GD are telling me fat is good but the diet I was given list skim and fat free everything. This is all so confusing.

Do you have any other conditions that would require a low fat diet?

No one is encouraging you to load up at the nearest fast food chains. But some healthy fats in your diet will satiate you.

I sent you info. on the Dr. Bernstein. It would be an interesting read for you.

Did you meet with a someone with a specialty in diabetes nutrition?

No nothing else. I'm totally going to read Dr. Bernstein.

I have not met with anyone, been given a handout with a diet that will send my bs through the roof. (4 cups milk a day)

You need to meet with someone that specializes diabetes nutrition and diabetes. My first dietician basically had to convince my first doctor that I needed to start testing my sugars. He was going towards medication before giving me a fighting chance to turn things around. When I switched to my midwives they made me meet with their nutritionist ASAP. Anyone changing their diet dramatically like this should have guidance

Re: So I have GD

Ok mama preggo with twins 32 years old, I was a marathon runner before this kiddos---so I find this annoying. I was told it was the combo of bedrest with twins.
I eat tons of veggies, lean meats, and follow this diet 45 carbs/15/45/15/45/15---and my numbers are perfect with diet. If you really want this you can do it. Just really work at the foods. If you eat enough protein you will not get hungry. I put heavy whipping cream on all my fruit seems like dessert. GL
