holy guacamole, yum!
with eleven chips.
So with this pregnancy I'm pre-gestational-diabetic. Which basically means that I'll have GD by the middle/end of my pregnancy (had it last time at the end) and now have to follow the GD diet and glucose testing regimen every day. Which, if you've ever had to do it, sucks.
However, there are some bright spots yet--guacamole is a "free" food, and a fab snack. (Preggers folks need the fat more than regular folks to help the wee one grow, so we get to splurge a bit!) And after a LONG COLD winter, creamy green avocado dip really hits the spot. It is truly holy.
I know in the end the baby will be worth all this work and calculation of carbohydrates, and hopefully the diabetes will go away afterwards.
To those of you out there with diabetes, I salute you--it's a tough road! People don't realize how much effort goes in to managing carbs and blood sugar levels on an hourly basis.
This post links up with my previous post, too--exercise is part of managing this issue. So, keep moving!
