*Results described are not typical and will vary for each individual.
During my first pregnancy in 2014 and before I discovered Nutritional Weight and & Wellness, I had gained at least 25 pounds by the time I was 31 weeks pregnant. I wasn't sleeping well, and definitely lacked energy. My pregnancy ended in an induction at 37 weeks due to preeclampsia and high blood pressure. Ultimately, I delivered via C-section and needed a dilation and curettage (D&C) to remove tissue from my uterus and a blood transfusion. I avoided the scale, but I gained at least 50 pounds during this pregnancy, and recovery was a long road.
I am now pregnant again, and after taking Nutrition 4 Weight Loss last year and continuing to meet with my nutritionist, JoAnn, I have learned so much about how to take better care of myself. At 31 weeks, I am much smaller overall and less puffy. But, more importantly, I feel so much better this time around. I have energy to play with my almost three-year-old and I am able to sleep at night.
After getting back on track with the Nutritional Weight and & Wellness way of eating after my early diagnosis of gestational diabetes, I am easily controlling my blood sugar with diet and exercise. At this point, I am still within 6 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight. So far, my blood pressure looks great, and I am on track for a trial of labor and hopefully a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), a HUGE goal of mine!
I just wanted to say thank you. Nutritional Weight &and Wellness has played a huge role in my pregnancy success thus far.
