As hard as it would be bit I would cut out all sugars and make sure it's all lean food and vege. A lot of packet foods or sauces are packed with sugar. Not sure of anything else.
I have had protein in my pee and katone (if spelt right) yet I was eating regular and lots so the midwife was not worried about it at all and all other test have come back clear and swabs show I have great anti bacteria.
Generally my diets not too bad, in fact I've lost 4.5kg since becoming pregnant!! - through eating healthier and cutting back on sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks.
I wont lie I do treat myself to sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks maybe 1/2 times a week but that's a lot less than I used to. I have also cut down on my portion size.
I'm worried as I've previously had a large baby (10lb 6oz) and really don't want it to happen again!!
I've had to send a urine sample to hospital to be tested and gotta go back next week for midwife to check another sample - but been told to keep an eye out for symptoms of pre eclampsia - which is freaking me out a tad!!
I've cut out almost all sweets, started eating 3 small meals and lots of small snacks instead of 3 big meals (to try and keep blood sugar levels steady) and started doing 30 minutes of walking per day.
There are usually free classes at the hospital that you can take for diabetes education too.
You don't need to stop eating sweets completely but only eat a small amount, and maybe only once or twice a week. I had about 2 bites of cheesecake today and I know that will be fine. Had 2 pieces of a Hershey's bar a few days ago too
I have GD and have been diet controlled for 2 weeks, so I'm by no means an expert, but I seem to be managing my blood sugars ok.
I've cut out all sweet stuff, which is really hard, especially with Easter and my birthday round the corner You just need to be really careful that you are eating a balanced diet. 1/4 protein, 1/4carb and 1/2 veg per plate. I'd also say - read the nutritional info on everything, you'd be surprised how much sugar can be hiding in some foods (masquerading as carbs).
Also there's a GD support thread in Gestational complications - well worth a read.
