*Just an addition to my post yesterday.  A different nurse called me late afternoon yesterday to talk about the results of my 3 hour glucose test.  Since a nurse called me the day before, I was a little confused.  The nurse yesterday said basically that I was borderline gestational diabetes so they do want me to follow their diet plan.  She was putting it in the mail to me.  I go see the doctor on December 3, so I am anxious to talk to him and find out why the 2 nurses basically told me 2 different things.  The first nurse basically told me to eat a well balanced diet and try to avoid greasy fast food.  The nurse yesterday told me I need to follow their diet (I did mention to the nurse yesterday that she was telling me something different and she couldn't really explain why).  

I am anxious to get the diet in the mail to see how this is going to affect how I eat on Thanskgiving, Christmas, and my birthday.

oh, bummer. i hope the first nurse's information was more accurate!

That would be frustrating. Have you had this with any other pregnancies?

Keep us updated. It would stink to have to follow a diet for the holidays.

The nutritionist that we met recommended a Calorie King book that goes off of carb counts. I bought it at Target for Matt. I don't remember the exact name, but will call you when I find it.

You need to watch the carbs, not just sugar. Remember that bacon is not a meat. It is a fat.

I'll tell you others later.
