Hello, I'm new here so please be gentle with me I'm 30 weeks pregnant and have been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes at my 28 week Glucose Test, although the doctor did say that my results were only slightly over but still indicates a diagnosis. For the last week and a half i've been testing my bloods 4 times a day (before breakfast, and then 1 hour after breakfast lunch and dinner) and my readings have been good, with the exception of a couple of fasting readings being higher than allowed and one evening where I didn't eat until late and had to grab something on the way home sending my sugars through the roof. I'm really struggling with what I can and cant eat though. I'm living off a cereal bar for breakfast (which doesn't fill me up in the slightest and the thought of standing over the cooker making porridge with water makes me heave) followed by a very small sandwich of cheese on nimble bread for lunch with a bag of monster munch which kinda fills a gap without my bloods spiking, and then i'm alternating between chicken lettuce & cucumber wraps, halloumi, lettuce and cucumber pittas with tzatziki, and quorn bolognese with wholemeal spaghetti topped with cheddar for dinners all of which are tasty and filling but my god it's getting boring now! I've always been a fussy eater, there's not much I do like which makes this super difficult, and most of the things that I like I feel I cant have as my sugars will spike. Spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking things from scratch isn't really an option as i'm still working full time and i'm exhausted by the time it comes to make dinner and the heat of being in the kitchen for long periods of time sends my heart rate soaring, along with the nausea I get from cooking smells. Asking my other half to cook again isn't an option as his culinary skills go no further than use of the microwave, toaster and frying pan. I'm diet controlled only and not on any medication, which is my preference of how i'd like it to stay. I have an appointment with the dietician next week but eating the same thing day in day out and feeling constantly hungry with nothing nice to look forward to is getting me down, i'm losing weight instead of gaining in my third trimester yet the diabetes doctor at the hospital didn't seem concerned as I was overweight to start with. whats making it worse is that my birthday is coming up too and i'm gonna be stuck eating the same that i'm currently eating with not a single treat in sight due to the fear of my sugars spiking. Any advice or guidance would be gladly accepted, I want to be enjoying my last 10 weeks of pregnancy not hating it and feeling hungry and miserable all the time.
