  • you can also feel hungry, start trembling, be extremely irritable, etc.

    Its just as, if not more, dangerous than diabetes. It depends on how low your sugar is. You need to see a doctor and tell him/her about it.

  • Your body will take from your storage what you are not getting from food for the baby. I had low blood sugar, while pregnant I was too tired to eat. It is better to eat five small meals, or large portion snacks. I would have episodes of blurred vision to not being able to see, and anxiety attacks. So eat! My next 2 pregnancies no problems with blood sugar
