I had low numbers after most meals too. My baby wasn't incredibly large (7 lbs 12 oz) and didn't have any low sugar problems after she was born.

That's just to say that it is entirely possible to control it with just diet, if you have low fasting numbers, like you do and I did. My nonmedical opinion is that that means our bodies are doing something right overnight when we don't eat - it just can't handle a bunch of carbs. I always thought of those numbers as a carb limit, not quota. I think it is important to balance carbs with protein, fiber, and fat, and to snack throughout the day, but I wouldn't force myself to eat 45g if you're fine with 30g. Just keep testing and make sure those numbers stay good.
