I saw my endocrinologist today (who is a GREAT doctor, but a tough cookie) and she ALREADY has me testing my glucose twice a day. I have to keep track of it and fax her my results each week. And, she made it VERY clear that I need to stay away from carbs.
Anyone who's been pregnant before knows this is damn near IMPOSSIBLE to do in the first trimester. Bread, pasta, potatoes...they've been a pretty good friend during those waves of nausea (which have been more and more frequent).
Oh well...guess I can throw away those extra mashed potatoes I made last night! Think of me while I shove salad down my throat while trying not to gag.
The prize is WELL WORTH IT...that's for sure.
