A day of what I ate on Easter Sunday (no chocolate bunnies) with Gestational Diabetes while trying to keep my glucose levels under control at 30 weeks pregnant. This is based on my drs protocol. Everyone will be different but here are some tips and tricks I’ve learned so far. Also, it is very similar to what they recommend for the pregnancy diet for everyone.
Fasting Blood Sugar: 92
Breakfast: 1/2 Protein bagel with cream cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, coffee with half and half
Breakfast Blood Sugar: 138
Snack 1: XS apple with peanut butter
Lunch: Salad with oil & vinegar, quinoa with spinach and parmesan

Snack 2: Trader Joes (Damn you) free sample of chocolate chip cookie with ice cream
Dinner: Quinoa Cowboy burger on slim bun with cheese, asparagus
Dinner Blood Sugar: 129
Snack 3: multigrain waffle, cottage cheese, raspberries
Thanks for watching and I’m not a doctor or nutritionist so be sure to consult with your doctors!

My name is Laura Laws and I started this channel because I wanted to get the word out about the ERA test (I thought it would be weird to put it on my Real estate channel). The ERA test is a biopsy they do in the IVF process to see when you are receptive to implantation. It is new and I wouldn’t be pregnant without it! My husband Phil and I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We have 3 ragdoll cats and we are due June 10, 2018 with our first baby girl! I have shared my 2 rounds of IVF as well as weekly pregnancy updates & other baby related videos. I am a real estate agent and you can check out that channel if you’d like to see more info on real estate, smart home technology and other random stuff here: https://www.youtube.com/user/KansasCityKitties
