Just got diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and I had been following a low to moderate carb diet that cuts out grains, dairy, and sugar. My dietician thinks I should increase my carbs to 175g because my baby needs it for brain development and if I do that I think it will lead to other health problems like preclampsia and having to go on insulin or diabetic meds. Also I thought increasing my carb load would be unhealthy for my pregnancy. Any advice?
