I went to the doctor today and she said that I "passed" my glucose test, but I was 1 point away from having to do the 3 hour test (which SUCKS!!). I am not diabetic, but I am only 7 weeks pregnant and they said that that is TOO early to have such a close score on the glucose test! She told me that to prevent gestational diabetes I need to cut out sugars from my diet and carbs...she even said not to eat fruit!! She didn't give me many things I could eat, except meat, so I am lost and really stressed because I wouldn't want to hurt myself or my baby! I am AFRAID to eat because I think that I am going to get gestational diabetes within an hour and then pre-eclampsia the next day, and then die from eclampsia!!! She said don't eat white rice, white bread, pasta, potato...can I eat wheat bread?? I find myself trying to eat better, but everything has carbs or sugar!!!! It makes me want to cry!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!
