Isn't it time for this baby to be here??

Thursday, June 29, 2017

I am so over this. The weight is coming off, which is great, but I can't keep doing this. I'm analyzing like EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth. I can't get my numbers under control. I am SO SICK of eggs. I'm sure they'll put me on meds the next time I go in, and I can't say it would be surprising. I dread meal and snack time. I stare at the fridge and cabinets and can't find anything that looks appealing. And then my damn in laws give me and my kids donuts! DONUTS?? Seriously? I was not a happy camper. I could just cry.

I had fricking salsbury steak, peas & mashed potatoes for dinner, and my number was 172 (supposed to be under 140 for a 1 hour stick. Breakfast, I had a bowl of frosted flakes and soy milk. 217! Like all I can eat is eggs and pbj!!!! I am not eating junk. But It's still not working. Oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. Sounds healthy, right? Nope. I get better numbers with a mcdonalds egg mcmuffin and hash brown! McDonalds? Really??

I told my friends that when the baby is born I'm treating us all to like the most carb-rich bad for us meal we can think of. I'm thinking like Olive garden with their heavenly breadsticks, and lasagna or something with a Coldstone Gotta Have it Death by Chocolate or something. I don't care if I sit on the toilet for a month for it. I just want to be able to eat FOOD. Normal food. Without everything being on the "Can't have it" list. I'm going CRAZY.

3 more months. How on earth do I do this??? Sticking myself 4x a day, Eating practically nothing but eggs and pbj. :(

If you read this far, thanks. I just need to cry about this for awhile.

    So sorry you are having a hard time. I will pray that things get better for you. Hang in there for 3 more months. Once your baby is here, you will realize how worth all of this was. Take good care of the two of you.

    Actually a egg McMuffin is one of the healthiest foods on McD's menu, but not the hash browns, but heck if they don't raise your sugar yeah. Frosted flakes are not healthy. Complex carbs are not bad as they rise the blood sugars slower. There should be diabetic recipes on the website. Look at the Glycemic index and choose foods lower. You can do this Jacque. I was sick my whole pregnancy with my last child. It is a struggle, but so worth it. Here is a link to the Canadian Diabetes. Sorry it is the one I know. My youngest son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was a teenager.

    You need to talk to a dietitian. Check the sugar content on Frosted Flakes. This amount will for sure raise your blood sugar. Learn to be a label reader. You'll be surprised at what is in some things. emoticon emoticon

    Pinterest. Low carb meals. There's actually quite a bit out there. You're right though, you probably will be out in meds, but think you only have to do this for 3 months, there's people that have to do it for life. 🙂

    Look online for diabetic meal plans. You don't have to stick to egg and PB&J. Pintrest has several ideas, day-by-day menus and the grocery list.

    I wish I had some super powerful, encouraging thing to say to you. In 3 SHORT months you will have the most amazing reason to have had to deal with all of this and it will all be worth it. Keep your head up. You got this!
