  • Your blood sugar may be dropping. I'd call the doc to be sure.

    Good luck and congrats on your little one! :)

  • It sounds like blood sugar....did you feel better a few minutes after eating the cereal??? The cereal wouldv'e gotten into your system relatively quickly. Symptoms of low blood sugar are: hungry, shaking, sweating, feeling jittery or like you can't sit still (I wring my hands uncontrollably), being light headed, slurring words, feeling confused and forgetful such as repeating words you JUST said. One can even pass out or go into a coma if it's too low.

    If you feel this way have a fast acting carb like juice or soda to get it up and then stabilize it with something like a sandwich or cereal.
