Meal Planning Monday 15/7/19 {Gestational Diabetes-Friendly)

The last week of the school year. I always feel a bit emotional at this time of year – the uniforms that are just a little bit too short (ok, a lot too short!) and the excitement of the next school year is a reminder that the boys are growing up so quickly. It’s also very weird to think that after Friday, the next school run I do will very possibly be as a mum of four!

This week is a little better than last week. At the time of writing, our car is on track to be fixed and back on the road ready for monday, which takes a HUGE amount of stress off. On Tuesday, I have Harrison’s class cafe – they’ve been learning all about India and so I’m going to be treated to coconut ladoo and chai tea lattes made by the children, which will be lovely. On Tuesday evening, I have my 32 week scan to see how Elizabeth is growing. Other than that, I think it’s a fairly chilled out week – I hope!

Since orginally writing this, I found out that I have gestational diabetes. This means that my meals are going to be needed to be tweaked to make sure they are safe for me and baby and won’t raise my blood sugars, so I will be putting my meals/adaptions next to it. Obviously, it’s all a bit of trial and error and what works for me may not work for everyone, so if you do have gestational diabetes, make sure you are getting all the correct advice.
