— Backed chicken with a side of pepers onions and mushroom fried

— Stake with a side of lettuce cucumber tomato and boiled egg sliced in the salad

— Bake green and red pepers in the pven stuffed with scrambled egg and feta cheese

— I had GD it sucked !!!! When i had the baby i made sure i looked at that placenta before they carried it away and said a big goodbye to it !!!

— Hmmm lets see.... Fajitas with low carb tortillas, hummus and cucumbers, scrambled eggs with salsa and cheese in a low carb tortilla, chicken salads, look up keto recipes they're super low carb and really tasty!!! Aldi's light and fit bread is pretty low in carbs if you want to get that and use for pb or ham n cheese sandwiches. Stay away from corn, potatoes, and pastas. Carb manager is a good app to use to track carbs. Try to stick to 150 carbs a day.

— @verguinia with my first I had no problems except for the morning sickness up until I delivered but other than that I so would take morning sickness over diabetes any day and I just got it but for some reason it's becoming to be a bit hard for me I never realized how many meals that not intentionally but I just didn't eat like they want me to eat breakfast lunch and dinner but snacks in between and sometimes like I don't eat breakfast until like noon and after that I'll just eat go straight to dinner instead of lunch so that's a little rough

— @mother.of.2 yessss i also didnt eat breakfast its hard to be writing all that stuff i started having like my coffee as a meal lol then wait 2hrs and wrote the result then i would make eggs,with fried eggplant around 10 am and coynt that as lunch and then eat dinner a nice meal full of veggies and protine around 6 and,alot of water throught the day and i found sugar free jelly and peanut butter also thier is a bread in the supermarket called double protine i didnt get high suger from it but didnt eat too much of it

— Organic chicken thigh with cumin, paprika, salt and black pepper. Cook in a skillet with those charred line. Idk what it’s called. And roasted broccoli floral, cauliflower floret in salt and black pepper with olive oil. Avocado mayo lime juice salt and pepper(blended) mix all together with cauliflower/broccoli with slice red onion

— I don’t have some of the stuff he has on the recipe so improvise

— @verguinia, at first I follow their example meal plan like egg toast and water for breakfast. And test one hour after. After a while of being so frustrated with trying to plan my meal and testing and all that made me so angry, I just eat consciously and test like two hour later lol. Or sometime test before I’m about to eat very badly. It take a lot of energy to maintain your blood sugar that it just frustrate me even more. But I got use to it. Now rice doesn’t seem appealing to me anymore. I love cauliflower broccoli ‘rice’ as my substitute

— Slow cooker is life 🙌🏼

— Follow flavcity on Instagram if you have one. I have done couple recipes from his page and loved it!!

— @aileen_west omg, I feel the exact way! I hate it so much. But I will for sure try this and hoping things get easier, I only have 5 weeks left if I don't have to get induced before but thank you so much.

— @mother.of.2, it really does take a little planning but it really does benefit you in the long run and the baby too. I didn’t think so until I had her and glad I stuck to most of my diet of low carbs low sugar diet (even I still have my everyday caramel macchiato lol)

— @aileen_west it is very frustraighting but i learned that there are people out there who live like this not because they are pregnant but bexause they have diebeties and i started to be more thankful i had this experience so that i can change to a healthy lifestyle before its too late
