    You got this! I like what you say about pairing food. Fat / protein with carbs. It’s awesome the bread didn’t spike you. The only way to know what does and doesn’t spike your sugar is by trying it. Fat and protein are your friends for sure. All the walnuts and cheese. And maybe even the GOOD ice cream (full fat chocolate peanut butter was my go to). I was also able to eat Perfect Bars. Seems like you have a mild case and a good attitude – it’s not that bad. Also, eggs are your friend (if you can stomach them). Also, walks and water will bring your sugar down. If I knew I was going to eat something that would raise my sugar, I would try to get in a walk.

    My wife recently got tested as a diabetic with a high A1C score of 9.7! She was devastated and I was extremely worried. But with the medication and right lifestyle her blood sugar levels have stabilized now. But in your case, a pregnant mom, it is tough to cut down on carbs, as you have a child evolving in you, who needs those.
