gestational diabetes/ vegan
I have a quick question for anyone familiar w veganism and GD. I prefer to eat vegan but am not "a vegan." For me it is strictly a taste preference. I was borderline GD w my last pregnancy, and being older this time around decided to switch to a low carb diet that included meat around the 2nd trimester. Despite barely gaining weight and eating under 100 carbs a day I was dxed w GD anyway.
So, since that obviously didn't do any good, I'd prefer to go back to no meat/ dairy but am confused about the diet restrictions of GD.
The diet plans I've looked at allow up to ~200 carbs a day but only 2 servings of fruit. Is it ok for me to eat more than 2 servings of fruit as long as I stay within the allowed carb number per meal/ day? Especially since I won't be drinking milk or eating cheese (the diets allow ~50 carbs in dairy). When I mentioned fruit to the midwife she made it sound like the 2 serving limit is set in stone.
I've been testing my glucose levels and fruit only seems to cause a problem for me in the morning (levels up to but not over 130) but not the rest of the day.
