Re: Anyone else with Gestational Diabetes?

I wasn't officially diagnosed, but with my last 3 kids, my midwife had me on a high protein diet. Like 100g or more of protein. She said it would help keep preterm labor down for me & also good for keeping diabetes & hypertension (I can't remember the official name for the problem, but it causes most people to have to deliver early because of severely high clood pressure). I think they went by the Bradley diet, consisting of high protein and low carbs & sugar. Well, it did work for me and my labor stopped when I ate correctly!

good luck!
