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.

well it can sometimes but most of the time it will not cause you to get diabetes i ask my docter what i could eat when iwas pregnant and she gave me a list of things that i should eat >>>>>>>>,fruit salads,salads with chicken,apples,omletes,grapes,otmeal,veggi crackers,tomato soup,and spagetti, she said those were all things that i should try to fit into my diet and i was also worried about diabetes and she said that cinnamon will help prevent diabetes
Check with your doctor they usually give you a list of what's encouraged to eat more of and what to avoid.  Fruits, veggies, fiber are all great to eat.  I love fatty foods too like jess and crave them with this little one so it's a struggle to limit them.  but like they said eat in moderation and you will be fine.  Do try to avoid foods that are super high in sodium, a lot of frozen meals are, so a ramen noodles and sports drinks.
