I mentioned to my dr yesterday that I was having problems. Bad problems..He just said its "probably" hypoglycemia. He told me NOTHING  about it. He said to keep eating. I'm already eating all the time..I guess I'm supposed to eat every 10 minutes?? Doesn't he think I'll gain like 100 pounds if I do that?? He didn't even do a test for me..I'm just supposed to eat and hope i can function that day?? What happens when i cant pick my dd up from school?? Did anyone have hypoglycemia during pregnancy and how did you handle it?? Because eating isn't helping me!

Yea that sucks. I would  have your doctor test you for diabetes to be safe.  I would watch your sugar. I have water on hand and peanut butter and crackers.

I'm dealing with this too. Try to eat higher protein foods. That keeps me level for longer than eating a bunch of sugar.

No . To know for sure u have it you have to have a blood test. The same test as diabetes. You have to drink that nasty stuff. I would just do what the other mom said just add protein.
