Mostly all the same: Be careful. Gestational diabetes is the result of excessive sugar intake including fruit which causes high blood sugar levels, which then make your Insulin levels rise. Plus the hormone changes in pregnancy make blood sugar problems worse. . Over time the chronically high Insulin levels lead to Insulin resistance and eventually gestational diabetes.

Fruit: Make sure that fruit is washed thoroughly to avoid infections and to minimized exposure to pesticides. Fresh fruits and vegetables are essential to a healthy balanced diet during pregnancy.
