Unhappy I know I have hypo-glycemia but WTH?

My hg always gets worse when prego. BUT OMG! I have had 3 episodes today. I just tried to eat some freaking m&ms! I just had to vent. Atleast I haven't passed out yet this preg. I guess I just really need to get more glucose tablets....sigh... I might bring it up to my doc on wed. But it always does this and I always pass my glucose test..... Just had to vent.. Thanks for listening...It is getting really annoying with a couple a day for over a week or so,.

Your blood sugar bottoms out. It gets worse while prego, why I am not sure? I am eating only wheat bread and low sugar oatmeal for breakfast, blah blah blah. I just can't seem to get a hold on it. And am constantly stopping by a burger king for an orange juice and protein. even after eating right

Any chance you could be anemic too? I am and I have passed out a TON this pregnancy. I got prescribed some iron and it has helped. My mom and sister have hypo-gycemia and I have seen how much it can affect people.

You are just having to deal with too much this pregnancy. I hope your sugar levels even out so that you get to feeling better

Re: I know I have hypo-glycemia but WTH?

aww. thanks. I just needed to vent. I called my mom (shes an RN) and she told me to up my fat intake and my protein to balance my sugars. And try to stop drinking coffee because it speeds up the process to fast and starts my day out bad. blech. Like I will ever give up coffee. right.... I have to have my coffee, I have 3 kids. So I will try to cut back to half a cup a day and see if that helps. Along with snacking on peanut butter crackers throught the day and eating every 1-2 hours even just snacks she said will help.
