Don't stress and don't worry. It took me about a week and a half to adjust to the new diet. The first week or two you will lose weight and that is very common. I was relieved once I attended the GD class and found out what all I could and could not have. To my surprise, I was still able to enjoy the foods I love, just have to watch portion control and moderation of those things. You will be fine though. Good luck and best wishes!

Gd isn't that hard really... I'm jealous of y'all with gd.. I'm a type  1 and it won't go away after she's here so just do your best for a healthy baby and be glad it's not worse
