GD Conseling #2:
I have lost 4 more lbs. I found out that again, I am not eating enough carbs. I missed out on like 40-60 grams of carbs total for the week. (it's like missing 2 or 3 snacks or 1 dinner). So, I have been encouraged to up my carb intake. I go back on the 13th in hopes that all is still doing well. The Nurse was very pleased with my numbers but wants me to eat more. E came with me this time to ask some questions he had. He also asked if I could eat whatever they served at my baby shower- and she told me to eat whatever and have a piece of cake. She says one day will not do anything in the grand scheme of things - and can be explained. They are more concerned with the days that can't be explained. She said there is no way on earth she would want to ruin my first baby shower ever and that was not this plans intention. I was encouraged by this. I have been hyper stressing about this counting, eating, and testing process. She told me not to think so much about it- She thinks I am over analyzing and she wished half her patients would take it 1/2 as serious as I have been. She told me that as I add more carbs and if I see a rise in my numbers not to panic- some bodies just can't control this and since I was on m.etf.ormin (and have p.co.s and sugar issues before I got pregnant) it would not be at all out of the ordinary that I would need a lil assistance trying to control 2 body sugars.
Thank you so much that commented on my last couple posts about your GD experiences and foods and such - That has been a HUGE help to read and go through - keep um coming.
WOW too many I statements.... bleh
We go and see the OB on Friday - Hopefully they will help my nerves also ..
Ok on to mo bettah news: I love the hair. It is very easy to manage (once I found my round brush) She cut the bangs a lil too short for my liking - but by the time of my shower, it should be perfect. Thank you all for the confidence boost- It's much appreciated. I actually did not get any color done. I have changed shampoos and use a brunette conditioner every other days. I don't know if that made a difference - But thank you so much for the compliments. It really does help my self esteem soooo much.
I am pretty sure that I experienced some bra.xton hic.ks Sunday. It was nothing too painful, it just was a lil cramping that was slightly more uncomfortable than normal - enough to want to sit down.
