Question by starlight_940: What are some breakfast ideas when you have gestational diabetes?
I’m 33 weeks pregnant and was recently diagnosed with a touch of gestational diabetes. I am no longer allowed to have more than 15g of carbs for breakfast before 10:00 am. So I have been reduced to some fruit and a glass of milk or yogurt for breakfast. Prior, I was a milk and cereal, muffins, oatmeal, eggs, bacon, and toast eater for breakfast. Now I am starving again after I’ve been at work for an hour with this reduced carb breakfast. It’s hard to have the energy I need to keep up at work when I haven’t had a filling breakfast. I start at 8:00 and I don’t get my lunchbreak until 1:00 usually. I can bring a snack to tie me over until lunch, but I still can’t even eat that until after 10. So do you have any good ideas of foods that will fill me up better but still be within the 15g of carbs guideline?
Answer by Elaura
Eggs and bacon don’t have any carbs so you can still do those. I ate a lot of string cheese which also has very low carbs and is very portable. Also, if you like sausage, you can get frozen, cooked sausage and microwave it.
I found that I could eat multi-grain Cheerios and they didn’t spike my blood sugar over the acceptable limit. Are you testing 2 hours after breakfast? Because it isn’t the number of carbs you eat that is important, it’s how high your blood sugar gets afterward.
