Type 2 diabetes

Just wondering of any ladies are out there with diabetes and are having a hard time controlling their numbers?  My first son was born 13+ years ago and I went undiagnosed with gestational diabetes (he had a pretty traumatic birth and has cerebral palsy and learning disabilities ). I was diagnosed with type 2 a few years later and then in 2008 had a miscarriage at about 10 weeks.  I got pregnant and gave birth to a healthy baby boy in 2011, but not without having trouble controlling my sugar. I suffer from food addiction which is part of the trouble. Last October I had a miscarriage again at only 5 weeks. I am now 6week 1day and am terrified of a miscarriage.  I just have such a difficult time controlling my food/Carb intake and therefore my sugars. Anyways I really am just curious as to others experience with pregnancy and diabetes and if anyone has some encouraging words.

I have type 2. Im 17 weeks and my blood sugars suddenly drop or shoot up really quick for no reason. Its weird. Ive been sticking to the 60 carbs per meal 15 per snack and doing pretty good.

I think 60 is too high for me. I usually have to stick to like 40 unless it has a lot of fiber. But then I feel hungry all the time! :/

Cream cheese, pickles, and popcorn wont raise your sugar much if at all. I stuff myself with popcorn a lot lol

I have type 2 and my A1C at 6 weeks was 10.5. I am now 17 weeks and it is now 6.2. I stick to a simple plan of 30 carbs for breakfast, 45 carbs for lunch and 60 carbs for dinner with a 15 carb snack 2 hrs after each meal. Good luck!
