I was on a diabetic diet and 90 units of insulin a day and that still didn't bring it down to normal levels
When I got pregnant with my second, I began following the diabetic
diet as soon as I found out. I still ended up getting GD, but it wasn't as severe. Whether it wasn't as severe because I started the diet early on or because it was my second baby and my body was able to adjust a little better is uncertain.
Now, I am pregnant with my third.
