I was wondering if anyone has had Gestational Diabetes and can recommend some good meal, snacks – not just for me but the whole family. I have an appointment Thursday with the diabetes nutritionist but I’m already 34wks pregnant and only just found out. I want to start ASAP but I’m stuck. I’ve tried researching some but it’s more just about GD itself not meals or receipe. Thanks. Do you have any meal ideas for gestational diabetes?
