Been feeling off lately

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

Been feeling off lately

Postby peaches118 » Wed Dec 10, 2014 2:00 pm

I am 16 weeks pregnant. For almost a week now, if I have too much sugar. Like say a bowl of ice cream. I start to feel very nauseous, light headed, and hot. I have to sit, have some water, and eat something. What could be wrong? Thank you!:)

Sounds like a blood sugar spike. My mother is a type 2 diabetic, and she runs like clockwork. After every heavy meal, she sits there and sweats. Sugar raises your metabolism for a short period of time, and your body kicks up the furnace. It's not a problem for most people, but pregnancy does weird things to your body. If it happens a lot, I'd let your doctor know. It could be GD. Most of the time, they don't test for it until 26 weeks or so. But if you're having symptoms of it, it's worth telling them. Watch out for yeast infections, shaking hands, and dizziness. All of them are markers. Good luck!
