Pregnancy and Low Blood Sugar

Okay, so I know the effects that low blood sugar could have on the baby. But lately I have been having really low blood sugar levels about 3 or 4 times out of a week. I was wondering what effect could these have on the baby. Should I worry that my sugar is always dropping?

Try a book I recently read called "Balancing Pregnancy with Pre-Existing Diabetes," by Cheryl Alkon. It may be pretty helpful for you...it talks a lot about having blood sugar lows.
Other than that, I guess constantly check your sugars to make sure you're where you need to be, and notify your doctor so they can adjust your treatment plans. Good luck!
