Welcome to the forum Cyn. It is really good to have you here. The easiest, fastest and most effecient way to get your blood sugar under control is to cut out as many carbs as possible from your diet. Since you are gestastional diabetic, I don't know if there is a recommended level of carbs to eat but I would get a meter and eat to that. If anything spikes your blood sugar, get rid of it. There are members on this forum that eat less than 50 grams of carbs per day. This would be equivalent to less than 3 slices of bread.
The types of foods that contain carbs are bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, corn, sweets, milk, yogurt, fruit, ect. Diabetics can generally enjoy as much vegetables and meat as they want.
I'm hoping we might have some others on here that are more experienced with gestantional diabetes but in the meantime it is important to get your blood sugar under control. Living with diabetes isn't as hard as it sounds and if you are like most women, in a few months you won't need to worry about it anymore.
