I was told at the beginning of my pregnancy that artificial sweeteners (especially splenda) was a pregnancy no-no. However, now that I have been diagnosed with GD (gestational diabetes) I am being told to have splenda-enriched sweets instead of sugary sweets. I know this is a normal change for diabetics, but wouldn't that contradict the whole no sweeteners thing for pregnancy? The packet they gave me when I was diagnosed was just for a diabetic diet in general, not gestational. Please someone clarify this for me...
