I apologize in advance for the long posti feel like im not going to win here. As in earlier posts ive told you all about my gestational diabetes. then the diet started not to work and i was put on insulin... then they raised my insulin dose. I feel like i can eat nothing. You all probably think thats crazy talk however even before i was pregnant i had a pretty big aversion to meat sometimes it would make me sick just to think about eating it. Now its the only thing i can eat besides the other 2 things ive been living off of eggs and cottage cheese. the other night i made chicken for dinner got 4 bites down then threw it all up. that was after the countless times i gagged trying to prepare it. Ive always eaten veggies but honestly they dont fill me up im always hungry... always. Plus my work schedule makes this nearly impossible working at nighta 50 hours a week also puts my eating schedule off.
for instance last night i went to bed at 4am after being up since 10am the previous day technically i only have coverage for 3 meals. but honestly do they really expect me to only eat 3 meals in 18 hours. my schedule is so off some days i only eat once and some days i need to eat waaaay more simply because im up more than 24 hours yet only have insulin coverage for 3 meals. luckily i am a nurse and find myself adjusting the insulin myself. But i cant do this forever i told the dr in the beginning i had real fears about being able to control this with my work schedule and that their normal "schedule" of meds and such probably would be near impossible.
I feel like my fears are becoming realized. Although since they upped my insulin my sugars have been ok, im taking alot of insulin and eating almost no carbs. im starting to lose weight i feel simply because there are not enough things im allowed to eat that i can also keep down. i felt like i needed to vent i dont want to hurt the baby but this is feeling like a losing battle any suggestions oooor even recipes that i might try that are low carb would be appreciated.
