Pregnancy diet


I had a gestational diabetes scare and my midwife made me completely change my diet.

Call me a nutrition-crazed health freak but I actually like the look of Meal Plan No 2 better than the Cadbury's chocofest :-) But I would still need my obligatory apres-meal square (or 2, 3, 4...) of dark Green & Blacks...

Err, why is your daughter's Easter Egg included on your plate. Tsk.
Send it over my way, I'm having a fat fest this month.

What, just before Easter?

Agree with Home Mum. Meal No. 2 looks lovely (apart from the Ryvita - ew, can't stand the stuff). If Meal No. 1 had had cream cakes on it, of course, that would have been a whole different matter.

If it was just a scare, does that mean you can indulge in the odd chocolate bar, then? Hope so!

Oh Elsie, poor you! I know how you love your choccies. Mind you, I do rather think I prefer the second plate... melon, olives, cukes... not too shabby!

More than Just a Mother said...

I'm with the majority - the second plate looks pretty good! Mind you, I'd quite like to follow it up with the first one...

I don't get it with the British and Cadbury - it doesn't even taste like chocolat, blagh. The worst are cream eggs, uaaahhhh...
Mean midwife you have there. What a partypooper!
You must be almost there, no? I managed to keep mine in a little longer (not exactly proud on myself), so our babies will almost have the same age.

Good luck!!! (PS: Chromium worked for me to keep the blood sugar levels under control.)

Definitely know which one I prefer.

Boy #1 just saw your 'before' plate. He now thinks you are the coolest person on the planet.

Louise said...

I would go for number 1 every time and I'm not even pregnant so can't blame that!!! Oh dear!

Hope you are OK.

Pig in the Kitchen said...

oh please, far too much praise for plate two. plate 1 is the clear winner, perfect antidote to a heavy drinking session, or indeed the news that you might have gestational diabetes. I do hope you haven't by the way. have you had to do that mad test that involves you drinking sugar-flavoured gloop? and then they tell you you're fine and it was all just a scare? tedious.

but think how much fun you'll have catching up on the chocolate you have sanctimoniously omitted...

Happy chocalicious easter,
(Fat) Pigx

Shame! The chocolate looks much nicer!
