Gestational Diabetes

I was just diagnose with Gestational diabetes. Currently at 25weeks. Didnt get a chance to consult dr yet as i was informed by the nurse through phone call only. Anyone else been through this? Need suggestions on what to eat and what to avoid. Worried sick now. Help!

Its normal to feel stressed at first but when you get used to it, its not that bad actually. You will be forced to eat healthy and watch your diet. :) I usually had wheat bread, eggs, oatmeal in the morning then for lunch and dinner, i usually had stew (chicken/pork/fish/beef with green leafy veggies) + about half cup of brown rice. I also ate loads of avocado and kiwi.
