In brief: Best to change now
It is probably most important for your baby for you to be most attentive to your diet now rather than waiting til after your baby is born.
The environment in utero is very important to your baby and if your blood sugar levels are constantly high, your baby can be at risk for a number of conditions that can affect him or her at birth and thereafter. Talk with your OB on a recommended diet for now.
