Sweets make me queasy. I try to balance them out with protein and/or fiber. Reactive hypoglycemia is pretty common in pregnancy. I have always had it with my pregnancies. Basically, your body senses the sugar and puts out insulin, but it doesn't use the insulin right away, so your body senses that there's still high blood sugar and sends out more insulin. Then you start using the insulin and have too much, so your sugar drops. You feel queasy, maybe shaky, maybe hungry or tired. You can combat it by trying to keep your sugars at a more steady level with protein and fiber and by eating frequent small snacks.
