Im am 17 weeks pregnant and went in today to have the 3 hour glucose test performed. I had Gestational Diabetes in my second pregnancy, but it skipped my third pregnancy. This is my fourth.
After the test I did not eat or drink anything for about 1/2 an hour, because we were picking up my son from school and getting lunch. Within 20 minutes of finishing the test, I got really shaky and sweating (Its in the 20's today) while waiting in line for my food. I nearly thought I was going to pass out. I was really worried that my sugar had gone too low, so I checked with my glucose monitor when I got back into the car. It was 55. I ate soem york peppermint patties (knowing they had sugar) I was really shaky, dizzy, and tired. when we got home, I told my husband to get me some orange juice right away. Within about 15 minutes my levels were back up to 88 and my symptoms were subsiding. Now a couple hours later my levels are fine, and I feel fine other than a headache ( I took a nap). Do you think that it was just the test that caused this reaction? or is there something wrong with me beyond possibly gestational diabetes?
