taking bitter gourd would not help in your gestational diabetes. You need to control your overall diet for this. Read the following blog for some suggestions and please take advice of a clinical dietitian on this. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/diabetes-during-pregnancy-gestational-diabetes/649
