Thread: 37 weeks and Lower BS #'s

  1. #1

    Default 37 weeks and Lower BS #'s

    So I've noticed over the last couple of days my BS levels are lower than I would expect. Fasting and post meal. I tested that theory this morning with a meal that has previously given me slightly elevated 2 hour numbers (like normally 121-125) and my 2 hour levels were 81!?!?

    I can't figure out the right set of search words to get any good information online. I thought I'd look into it, like maybe it's normal at this point in gestation, before emailing my doctor's office.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    Stepping in to say I had GD with my daughter and I experience lower blood sugars but mine was typically too low at the end so I had to follow the rules for correcting it. The nutritionist told me something that does happen but, its not always a bad thing.

    Thanks for chiming in Lindsay! What did you do to correct it? Just add more carbs back in?

    Yes I usually drank 1/4 of a cup of juice. I had some 50's in the morning they didn't want it be below either 60 so juice would usually perk me back up without going over. They had a list of different things like juice, soda, fruit, candy that's not chocolate. Apparently chocolate would screw it up which I don't no why. GL PM me anytime if you have more questions I remember most of it though its almost been 3 full years.

    I had a little extra biscuit with my lunch today and my 2 hour number was 129, so maybe I shouldn't be too freaked out yet.

    I did have a growth u/s yesterday and the OB said my placenta looked good. I think I'll wait to see what my fasting numbers are tomorrow.
