I feel like crap. I was shaky, sweaty and awful feeling. I thought I was going to pass out.

I am 35 weeks pregnant, and not very good with this gestational diabetes thing.

Just wanted to vent.

Did you drink some juice to bring it up? I think you need to consider keeping glucose tabs with you.

 Make sure you take care of yourself! Is it back up now?

I always hate when that happens.
Feeling better?

I drank juice then ate some snacks. I've only got 2 weeks before induction, so hopefully can keep it under control :(

Way better, but it sure scared me. I'm on glyburide to keep it down, and they told me to skip it tomorrow and monitor what happens. I've been eating fine, but just got some awful liver disorder (cholestasis of pregnancy) last week and it is messing me up :(

Let's just say this pregnancy has been a challenge!

I am on glyburide too and feel awful, shaky, tired etc. I am slowly cutting down on it until I get my levels in the low  100's for rising, before breakfast, and 130's during the day.


This morning I was 90 something so I still have some adjusting to do.


Hang in there.
