Actually, : Actually, if the world followed a diabetic diet, the whole world would be a much healthier place. Continue cooking healthy, diabetic friendly meals and taking your prenatal vitamins. As long as you are eating a balanced although low carb diet, you and your baby will be fine.

It is likely ok: It is always recommended to eat healthy during pregnancy by taking in the appropriate and right amount of the different food groups. The underlying purpose of diabetic diets is to promote healthy eating. You should be fine to participate in a healthier lifestyle but if you continue to have concerns, review your pregnancy requirements with your doctor.
