    I love this advice, it’s very empowering. It seems rather tough as well, but having a healthy baby as a type 1 diabetes is plain tough, no way around that.

    I have type 1 and conceived twins with a 4.7 A1c which went up to 5.3 in the middle of the pregnancy. I didn’t have an endo for my pregnancy but did follow most of the advice mentioned in the video.

    I ate bread, but only ezekial whole grain bread and only one slice a day. I had brown rice a few times. It’s hard to avoid those 5 foods she mentions but you know what? That was the easiest way for me to manage my sugars so I did it and for the most part still do it.

    Avoiding those 5 foods helped me to only gain baby weight as I had to fill up on chicken and eggs and loads of veggies and fruit and yogurt. My babies were almost 6 pounds each and not overweight at all, they were born a month early by c-section.

    At the moment my two year olds are trying to eat play-doh but other than that their perfectly fine :)

    It can certainly be done! and many women have had healthy babies with A1c’s closer to the 7% range as well, which is good to note.

    This is great advice. I am currently thirteen weeks into my first (very unplanned) pregnancy and I feel like it’s really hard to find solid, non-preachy advice. I wish I lived near this woman.
