The midwife seems to think it may be pre-e and that's why she wanted the additional panels, but low blood sugar seems a bit more likely. When I know you'll know!
it sounds a lot like blood sugar issues to me too Taryl...only b/c lightheadedness/fainting/exhaustion isn't one of the symptoms my midwives told me to watch for when thinking of pre-e (i was told, seeing spots, pain in my upper gastric section, and severe headache)...and after dealing w/ my father w/ blood sugar levels in the 20s, it sounds just like how he felt...have you had any cold sweats or anything?
I know how those appts can be...I'm sorry you've had to deal with that...it does throw a wrench in things...I'm glad Callie was good for g-ma; sounds like she's a real trooper
Wow Teryl. What a day you had. After the initial appointment, I would have lost it at Wendy's. Small things like that are what get me these days.
I've had issues with hypoglycemia this whole pregnancy. Here at the end when thing are hard to process by our bodies cause of all the additional changes, doesn't shock me. I just am shocked that the office jumped to all the tests so quick. But at the same time, pre-e is very serious and you don't want to put yourself at risk like that either. Did they say when you'd get the results back. I'll definately have you in my thoughts and prayers that it is nothing serious but maybe some low blood sugar. Speaking of, how do you feel after sweets? Do you notice "down" times at specific times of the day? That was one thing I noticed with me. The dizziness would happen at the smame times of the day roughly. A few hours after I at or right firsst thing in the morning when I was low.
Hi Taryl- I'm trying to get caught up on your lodge and it sounds like you've had one of those days recently! So sorry- keep your chin up! Not much longer and that lil one of yours will be here!
I don't notice any feeling, better or worse, after eating unless I really haven't done it in awhile. I've dealt with blood sugar issues before (hypoglycemia and I spill ketones REALLY easily) and this doesn't really seem food linked.
Okay ladies - give me good thoughts today. I'll update late but I am in an AWFUL mood. I just want to kill something, like a cute fluffy bunny.
I hope things come back normal and you don't have to have the added stress of an induction. I'm sending you lots of good thoughts!
