It sucks! It's xmas time and there are goodies galore, and i won't be able to indulge my sweet tooth, which has just returned this trimester, in all the xmas goodies because i've been diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
Of course, i have to experience like almost every negative symptom of pregnancy there is. I had 5 months worth of morning sickness, hemmarhoids and now gestational diabetes. And you know, this condition was the condition i was so confident i wouldn't get.
I do have a sweet tooth, but the sweet tooth disappeared as soon as i got preggie. I've not been over-indulging in food, and i've only put on 10 kilos since i got preggie. Make it 9 kilos, i've managed to lose 1 kilo over the last 2 weeks! Even my colleague who's put on 20 kilos, carrying ONE baby, didn't get it. Nooooo but i did!
Sigh...last week i had to go through 2 days of self-testing of my blood sugar levels on 6 meals a day diet my doctor has put me on. The diet's not too bad, like i said, i haven't been over-indulging. The new diet is basically the same as when i was not on a diet, except i've cut out my sweetened yoghurts, sweetened cereals (like cococrunch) and the marigold choc puddings i've been indulging in. Oh and my occasional ginger beer, which was really to help my morning sickness.
But still...i'm NOW craving the sugar and the chocolates....and i can't have any...
