Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Aloha, I am a diabetic and alil overweight.  What my doctor advise me to do is to have some carbs daily.  My total intake is 45 grams am, 15 snack, 60 lunch, 30 snack, 60 dinner, and 30 snack.  This has helped me maintain my sugar level stable and my weight.  I am almost 18 weeks and had only gained 6 lbs.
also, always balance a carb with a protein. This will help you not gain all of the carb weight and keep it from overloading your body with glucose. 
Orange juice is something good to drink when your blood suger is low. It wil raise it just enough without over doing it.
