  • All the junk food could be the problem, but also, make sure you are getting enough water, calcium and iron, as deficiency in these could also cause those symptoms. Good luck!

  • I would get that way a lot throughout my pregnancy. These last two pregnancies, I have had gestational diabetes. It calls for a huge change of diet, I am so desperate for a donut and cup of sweet tea right now.... but not for 3 more weeks.

    Anyway, I would discuss it with your dr as soon as you can. You may need to get the glucose test and see if your sugars are out of control.

  • I would definately call your doc and have him run some labs, you very well could have gestational diabetes and can cause all your symptoms :) Good luck
