Kaiser Permanente posts their lab results within hours. I got my results and emailed my dr/nurse right away. I am now scheduled to see a dietician on Friday and a perinatologist in two weeks. Oh and I'm just 12 weeks today. I asked for the glucose test, since it is very prominent in my family (my dad and his 13 brothers and sisters are ALL diabetics).
Since I have not met with anyone yet, I was doing some research on what I should be eating and foods to avoid. So I've been eating more foods that are on a GD diet (wheat bread, cheese, peanut butter, chicken, etc). Totally stopped eating any sweets. I think I'm having withdrawals, not that I was addicted to sweets in the first place. I have found myself with headaches and dizziness these past 2-3 days. Is this normal? Should I eat regularly and just wait to see my dietician (even though it is in just two days)? I had a headache/dizziness earlier and so I ate a burger and felt 10x better.
Also, my weight had already been fluctuating since I found out I was pregnant at 4 weeks. I started off at 156.4 (I am heavy for my height). Then fluctuated between 157.8 - 158.8. Yesterday I believe I was 157.8. Today I weighed 156.6 (I did have BM 4 times yesterday! Don't know what was up with that!). Is this normal? I'm guessing it was cause I had changed my "diet".
Any words of advice, comments, etc. please. Thanks!
