have you seen a dietitian yet. I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy and my dietitian helped so much. She taught me what to eat and when to eat it.

I was a GD also many years ago (13) So I already knew the basics. Funny part of all this is I work for a Community Clinic in a local Emergancy room here, and the people I work closest with are the ones who do Diabetes Education, So when I was Diagnosed the case manager/educator gave me lots of info, told me how many carbs per meal and snack and that was about it. I spoke with her this morning and she of course suggested exercise, So me and the hubby are heading to the gym tonight after work. And one of the PA's here is gonna give me a book she thinks will really help. If all this doesn't work when I go to my follow up appointment on the 18th I'm gonna ask to be reffered to a different education class.
