Try to limit all white food(potatoes, white bread,milk,  pasta, etc). Up your greens, and protein. Remove all sugars, try to eat a salad before your meals,  and walk daily. I had a very hard time adjusting to a new diet. I got the hang of it and have really low numbers now.  This is my third pregnancy and first time having GD.

Hi, are you on insulin?  If you're not and you're having a hard time controlling numbers, then you should be on insulin and it will make things much easier.

I can recommend eating low carb (meat, heaps of non-starchy veges, eggs, full fat dairy, nuts).  No grains or sugars, even fruits are very sweet, no sweetened foods or drinks.  Your baby gets your blood sugar levels, it doesn't know what you eat.  

Taking a walk after each meal may also help control numbers.
