So I got diagnosed with GD a few days ago and my appointment with the dietician isn't till 9/6. It was a shock because i passed my 1 hr with my oldest son and i ate so much worse than this pregnancy, but for whatever reason it happened this time. im over feeling sorry for myself and am choosing to be thankful they found it, so now I'm trying to move forward full speed ahead and make substantial changes. I am determined to be healthier by the time this baby comes.
so it's a challenge though since my appointment isn't till next Friday.I don't want to just be in denial and mindlessly eating till my appointment and be in seriously bad shape. I failed the 1st and 2nd hour of my 3 hr glucose. The first hour, my blood reading was 188, my second hour read was 164 and my 3rd hr was 68. I started walking 40 mins per day and eating about 2200 calories and eating 35% carbs and upping protein and fats. Im not sure if this is right, but i also don't want to do anything too extreme either. I'm eliminating white flour, desserts processed foods and increasing protein and healthy fats. It's a tough transition for me because i was vegetarian-ish and much of my diet revolved around lots of carbs and lots of fruit. I'm keeping a positive attitude because I know I can make some big changes and do whatever I can to ensure I give my son and myself the best opportunity possible.
I understand each lady here will have a different plan but could you share with me what your diet plan is or any resources I could check out? Thanks so much!!!
