I am thinking about having baby #2 and am wondering about trying to eat a low (or lower) carb diet this time around. Baby #1 was big (9 lb 13 oz at 37 weeks) despite good control (A1cs in the low 6s and high 5s the whole pregnancy). I'm wondering if limiting my carb intake will help me to minimize blood sugar fluctuations and help avoid chasing high blood sugars.
However, I know that most OBs, nutritionists, etc are not too keen on pregnant women limiting their carb intake. So I was curious to hear whether anyone has done this successfully, with or without the support of your OB or endo.
I think there have been posts about this before, but I couldn't find them, and anyway I thought it might be a good topic to bring up again.
Looking forward to hearing your experiences!
