I had to go see a dietician- they walked me through portion sizes and gave me limits on the carbs I could consume with each meal.  Dinner was the most carbs allowed- I had to make sure I ate 6 small meals a day instead of three large ones.  I tracked my diet, and my blood sugar readings with each meal (they showed me how to do that too).  

I was terrified at first, but that pregnancy that I had gestational diabetes with was really the BEST!  I ate well, and felt so much better- it's something that you have to pay attention to, but it will be ok.  :)

Oh and MedHelp has a free app that can help too (awesome for entering in your sugar readings and you can send them right to the doctor from the app)- it's called Sugar Sense- you can find it on this page- http://www.medhelp.org/health_tools/#/mobile_apps
