Hey all.... this is my first pregnancy and I am diabetic type two. I constantly have headaches, why is that? lack of water intake? I am watching what I eat everyday cuz everything has sugar in it. I eat fruit daily but not a lot because thats sugar too. I am so nervos. My levels are up and down sometime, but rarely too low. Anyway gotta go and eat...Any good advice? I have my first OB app tomorrow thank jesus.
Hi!! I am also a Type 2 diabetic. This is my first pregnancy. I know sometimes a headache could be signs of high blood sugar and also low. You would have to check your level to see which one it is. Most of the time for me, I have severe headaches when my sugar drops. I hear that the pregnancy can really make your sugar levels fluctuate, especially during the last trimester. The diabetic forum would also be a good option, if it was more active. I hope you have a great appointment tomorrow!!!! How far along are you?
Oh ok, I will be 2 months this Saturday. I just saw the diabetes educator last Wednesday. Apparently, my blood sugar levels were not as low as she would like, so she admitted me to the hospital. I was there for three days!!!! Now I have to test my sugar at least 4 times per day. Do you keep a log of your blood sugar levels?
I have GD and have to check my sugars 4 times a day and I get 4 insulin shots a day. The testing is normal. Sometimes I feel like all I do is moniter my B/S and BP. It's kinda nice that I'm on modified bedrest so I actully have the time to do it.
Oh wow, modified bedrest would be so nice right about now. I am soooo tired all of the time. I'm a Type 2 Diabetic, but I only get insulin shots twice a day. I hate needles. I wouldn't know what to do if I had to double the times I have to stick myself.
I've been on bed rest for 6 months, it is mentaly & financialy draining. I have another 7 weeks to go till I deliver via c-section. I am more than complicated and have been in and out of drs offices at least everyother week if not every week since I was 8 weeks. Now I am being seen twice a week.
