I'll be 29 weeks on Monday... I already took my glucose test and it came back normal... I guess I'll bring it up to my doctor on my next appointment... Was just wondering if it was a normal thing during pregnancy... Thank you everyone who answered!!(:
I was like that, more so at the beginning of my pregnancy. Aslong as you eat correctly its not a problem. Eating small snacks more often helps a bit.
I read this on buzzle.com
Enlisted below are a few symptoms:
Shaking The urge for food or hunger causes a pregnant female to tremble and shake (generally her hands), which is one of the main symptoms of a hypoglycemic reaction.
Lightheadedness It often happens that lack of blood supply to the brain and heart during pregnancy leads to weakness, dizziness, confusion, and thus lightheadedness.
Anxiety Anxiety is a common major symptom observed during pregnancy. It is caused mainly due to irritation, hormonal changes, nervousness, and possibly due to low blood sugar levels.
Fatigue Excessive exertion makes a pregnant female feel very weak and tired, since the energy requirements of the body are not fulfilled.
Insomnia Insomnia or lack of sleep is another symptom noticed. This condition is often accompanied by excessive sweating and high bouts of depression.
Other symptoms Paleness, rapid heartbeat, agitation, lack of concentration, blurred vision, temporary loss of consciousness, and convulsions.
Diagnosis (Glucose Tolerance Test)
• Hypoglycemia isn't a fatal condition if monitored properly. In a woman suffering from high blood glucose levels, the baby produces more insulin to control the increased sugar levels.
• This could significantly lead to low sugar levels in the baby, since the body would become accustomed to producing excessive insulin.
• A test showing glucose levels during pregnancy can be a sure shot way of monitoring the sugar levels. A low blood sugar level chart will help in diagnosing the condition immediately.
• Whenever you feel dizzy or lightheaded, just lie down on the floor so that you do not end up hurting yourself. It's advisable to lie down on the left side, since it facilitates more blood supply to the brain and heart.
• If you are unable to move, you could simply rest your head on the knees.
• If you are doing some activity say driving, stop immediately.
• Whenever you feel weak, have a glass of milk or fruit juice or consume high-sugar foods at the earliest.
• Eat properly even if you are worried about your shape. You could indulge in chocolate bars as well.
• Testing blood glucose levels is a prerequisite, since it'll keep you informed about your health status.
Hypoglycemia in pregnant women is not associated with any complications as such, but if one suffers from diabetes, then utmost care must be taken. This is because it could result in several complications both for the baby and mother during the delivery. High blood sugar levels pose a huge risk in such a case.
So, now you must be well-acquainted with what to do if you suffer from hypoglycemic reactions while carrying a baby. The main aim is to maintain a normal blood sugar range. If it is too high or too low, it is a cause of alarm.
