I had to do the same thing when I was pregnant with my little girl.  Avoid carbs, like oatmeal, bread, pasta, and try to stick to proteins like meats.  I don't think high blood sugar causes birth defects, but ask your doctor just in case.

Talk to a dietitian, they will be able to give some great pointers.

I dont think it causes birth defects, but you need to partner with your doctor and a dietician so that you know exactly what you should and should not  be eating to maintain  your good health.
