Okay, since I was a little girl and growing up, I knew that I have had to eat when I started getting hungry. One time I skipped lunch, as a pre teen, and then ate a sandwich about 3-4 pm.....I was busy playing and didnt want to go bother with lunch.......well I did so and I got so sick vomiting that I had never done that again..
Okay so fast foward to being preggo with cheyenne I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. The past week I have been trying to cut back down on my calories and I had planned on starting exercising again after school started.....
These are the symptoms I have been experiencing quiet often this week.....from webmd.com
Feeling nervous or jittery.
excessive sweating not caused by exercise.
A rapid heartbeat (tachycardia).
Mood changes, such as irritability, anxiety, restlessness, or anger.
Confusion, difficulty in thinking, or inability to concentrate.
Weakness, lack of energy.
Fatigue, lethargy, or drowsiness
on the rapid heartbeat, I dont have a monitor to check for that, but it feels like my heart is beating so fast. like I just had a run, but have been sitting still.
so I dont have health insurance for myself, and cant go to the doc. I have made myself a promise that I will not diet enough to where I am so hungry that the shaking starts. I tried filling out a form two days ago while I was shaking and my writing was horrible. One day while shopping for the cruise, I could make a decision and was shaking so bad I had to go eat right away and then go back to my task.
This also stinks because full blown diabetes runs in my family.
When I had GD I had to check my sugar when I got up, two hours after I ate, and before bed. Those of you with experience with Diabetes have any suggestions about which other times I should be checking my sugars?
I still have my blood sugar monitor and tested it and it was only at 76....so it was not super extremely low at all......(normal is between 70 and 140), so technically I was in normal range......
this also could explain why it is hard for me to keep up on the BBB...I cannot keep my concentration level up enough to reply so I started lurking again.....
