im at my 31 week and was diagnose with GD at week 28. have been struggling with it and feeling all stressed up abt it ever since. regardless what i eat; no carbo, bland food, no oil, no sauce.. my readings still spike i can wake up with a reading of 7 in the morning, even with fasting the night before. Personally im not sure abt the diet that was adviced by ODAC.. i have read in this thread unpleasant experiences there and i can totally relate. One afternoon, the nurse called me to ask for my reading after lunch. it was unusually high and i was so stressed up abt it. To make matter worse, she started questioning what i ate, the portion.. and even to the extend of how much was my lunch. When i told her my lunch was $8 for a bowl of fish soup, she commented that i may have over-ordered and ate more than i was suppose to since most fish soup was $4-$5. Firstly, food ard my workplace is not cheap.. and that stall of fish soup is known to charge that price. secondly i didnt even drink the soup and only ate 1/2 bowl of rice. Broke down after the call cos i felt so insulted, like im an uncontrollable kid who went on an eating rage, but obviously i didnt and have been controlling and its just not working. felt so misunderstood and judged. Met my gyane 1 week later and told him i dont buy the ODAC diet of 12 table spoons of rice each meal. i told him thats too much for me. he agreed the diet they gave is a template and does not work for everyone. since i have been monitoring what i eat and tallying it with the readings, i should know better. i did notice when i eat salad and boiled meat with no sauce, the readings come down abit but they are still abv the limit and hovers between 7-8. Gynae is giving me another 1 week to monitor and stick to my diet of boiled meat and salad with no sauce and no oil.. if the readings can be kept below 8 i can do wo insulin. so im really trying my best this week. wish me luck Wondering if there are mummies over here who are experiencing the same as me? i read thru the thread and seems like most of you here are still managing it quite well. keep it up!
