How many Grams of Carbs should someone with type 2 diabetes, or gestational diabetes intake a day?

I am waiting for my second round of blood work to come back with the results as to whether or not i have gestational diabetes. My OB said she is pretty sure it will come back positive so while im waiting for the final results i want to make sure im not ingesting to many carbs. What is the suggested intake of carbs for someone with gestational diabetes and/or Type 2 diabetes?

    15 grams of carbs is equal to 1 serving of carbs on a diabetic diet exchange.

    When I was pregnant and had GD, my dietitian allowed me 1 serving of carbs for b'fast, and two for lunch and two for dinner. Select health carbs, whole grain…

    Hope that helps.
