I am 7 wks pregnant and I am doing about a 80-90% primal diet. I am diabetic as well, so I have had to adjust my carbs around a bit. I do 15 carbs for breakfast and my first 2 snacks. Dinner and Lunch I have about 50 carbs or so each, and my pre bed snack is also about 15 carbs or so. I was supposed to do 27 grams of carbs at bedtime, but it made my blood sugar too high in the morning. I have been getting up at 3am to test to see where I am, and I also test before all meals and 1 hour after each meal to see if I am in the 'zone'. I have to keep my blood sugars between 70 and 130 and preferably below 90 when I wake up. I have added back in Ezekiel bread, ak mak crackers and wasa brod (ok, ok, yea I know, not primal!) but I get the majority of my carbs from veggies and some fruits... mostly apples, plums and berries.
Every day is another stitch in the quilt of life.
