    Default Hypoglycemia and pregnancy?

    I am suffering really badly from hypoglycemia (self diagnosed ) this pregnancy. I have suffered from it many times on my life but now I am pregnant it seems to be happenuing almost every day.

    I don't see my midwife until after the 20th of June and was wondering what advice you have been giving on dealing with hypoglycemia during pregnancy?

    I know the best way to treat it is to prevent it in the first place. Usually when it happens I will just eat a sandwich or something and a milk drink (and usually keep snacking until it goes).

    It's such a gross awful feeling and I hate it!

    Do you have access to a blood sugar tester at all? (If not, do you know anyone with diabetes as they will have one?) Otherwise perhaps a trip to the GP to confirm your diagnosis? My experience with hypoglycemia is through my daughter, who has had hypoglycemic seizures (in fact, we've almost lost her twice - her blood sugar has been as low as 0.8!) What has worked for her is to follow a low GI diet, to eat every 3 hours, and to eat immediately on waking and just before going to bed. Perhaps you could keep a snack beside the bed? Good luck!

    Low GI diet, good qty of protein.

    Smaller meals more often, plenty of water.

    And get yourself checked by your doctor! It may also be your blood pressure dipping, that happens through pregnancy as well and can have similar symptoms.

    It is a truly gross feeling so I hope for your sake it improves.
    Men men men men, yep thats all I live with! Even the budgie is a boy.
