Wordless Wednesday (now with BONUS words!): GD and Lies

by | Feb 15, 2012 | PREGNANCY, BIRTH & BREASTFEEDING | 14 comments

So I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes two weeks ago.


Although not for my sons who love to watch Mumma's 'bud tess' – little sadists.

We eat well. That's not an issue.

Except for the cheesecake/pavlova obsession.

The Black Doctor? Is a biiiig issue.

So you can understand why this is the height of cruelty;

Canned Lies
You're no friend of mine, pal. And you know it.

I miss you.

So what's a pregnant girl with insulin resistance to do?

Well, let me tell you, it ain't this;

No To Coconut

Can you believe this shit actually tastes like….coconut? Ewww.

These famous people? Have been paid to be seen holding these little bottles of hell. I'm sure of it.

Look! The smiles are waaay forced.

And what about the ones who aren't smiling?

I totally know why.

I love a good celebrity fad but this is ridiculous.

Lesson: unless coconut is wrapped in chocolate and goes by the name of Bounty, it's arse and you should avoid it at all costs.

You're welcome.

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Ahahaha! Totally forced smiles! I’ve never had the (dis)pleasure of tasting that coconut drink – but it does look rather spewy.

    It’s a tricky thing trying to work out a substitute for ‘The Black Dr’ – but i suggest you try Ez’s faaaaaaave fizzy bubbly. Mineral water. Yep. “Boring” – i hear you say, but with a fresh slice of lemon or lime and some ice cubes, you get that fizzy edge without all the naughtiness. Or even better – a big splash of cranberry juice in there too (with a slice of lime – drooool). I’m a total convert and go through litres of mineral water a week (since i’ve given up weeknight booze). And at 80 cents for a 1.5 litre bottle, i’m cheering!

    Try it, you’ll like it!

    Straight up is Yuck… but I found one I like and it’s an Aussie brand. Pineapple Cocobella. I get it from Coles in the same aisle as the cordial. It’s yummy :o)

    Dirty. Filthy. Looks like dishwashing water. Makes me want to vomit (actually, a lot of stuff does these days… but that’s not the point). Boo hiss to that – don’t drink it again – I forbid it! As for the Black Doctor, I think I may as well be on a Coke IV at the moment with the amount I’m consuming 😐 I’ll have one for you but I’ll be mean to it and yell at it whilst I’m having it and let it know it’s not ok to be pretend to be friends with someone…..?!

    I haven’t had Coke in almost a year Angie – you can do it!!!! I must say though, that the coconut water doesn’t look too bad!

  5. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    My first thought was seriously, “Eww, it tastes like coconut!” I mean, come on, what kind of fool am I? I ask you.

    I have been on the mineral water with lemon slices for many years but have yet to totally convert…obviously. I worked out it was just the fizz I was after but by then, the sugar addicition was well and truly established. Now is the time to make the conversion complete, isn’t it? I CAN DO IT!

    Reeeeally? I am intrigued. Will check that out. Thanks, lovey.

    Now deets, please! Baby daughter! Name? Birth stats?


  7. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Yes, drink that Coke in a really angry way. I would appreciate that.

    And stay away from the dishwater! It’s wrong.

  8. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Wow, Fran! Did I know that? What a stellar effort. You’re my hero – seriously.

    But you’ve been warned about the hell water…

    Coconut is the devil’s work. You will not get any argument from me.

    I was a mineral water junkie but yes, Coke was a mega lure for me during pregnancy. I had one of those slushy things every day for the last month before W was born and I don’t really drink the stuff much. Go figure.

    Damn … I know what I’m sending you after this baby’s born. A cheesecake shop gift voucher and a slab of Coke.

  10. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Coconut. Just say no.

    As for your last sentence, I am committing this statement to memory. I hope you come through for me… I don’t want to scare you but I ‘thought’ my landlord off the roof today. I have that kind of power……

  11. Tash

    Haha, I LOVE Coconut water. I drink 3-4 bottles a day. It’s so refreshing & I love the taste. Coriander & Blue cheese on the other hand, Argh, pass the bucket !

  12. MJ

    I’ve yet to try this stuff, although I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been curious. That’s it, though – just curious. I don’t mind a bit of coconut, but I don’t love the stuff.

    As for getting off the black stuff? The solution is obvious. Move to the US – American Coke is pretty shit (evil high fructose corn syrup) and will cure you of your addiction. These days, I only drink Coke when I can get my hands on the Mexican stuff.

    I take it you’re not a Pepsi gal, then (I’m not). Those taste tests/challenges? Too easy. I often worry for those who can’t tell the difference.

  13. Kate

    I am an absolute coke addict! I gave up the fags, don’t drink much alcohol these days, but the coke, I just can’t do without it. 🙁

    Fran, I’m impressed!!

  14. Chantelle {fat mum slim}

    Hilarious! Funnily enough I’ve never been tempted to try coconut water. Those smiles look forced to me.
