I have been feeling really good during this 2nd tri. I am 23 weeks and they last few weeks I just start shaking and dont know why. I am not cold. I feel fine. It just starts. It continues for like 5-10 min then goes away. It doesnt happen every day, about 2-3x a week. Most of the time I have to go lay down when it happens. Has this happened to anyone else? Do you know what this could be?

No direct experience, but it could be blood sugar related.  Do you notice it more when you're hungry or haven't had a solid protein meal in a while?  Protein helps to stabilize your blood sugar.  Or conversely do you notice it after you've eaten and perhaps especially after a meal that might be higher in sugar than usual?  What about hydration?  How much water are you drinking per day?  I aim for 3-4 L of water, especially in this heat!  Speaking of heat... do you notice it when you're more active outside or the opposite, haven't gotten outside for a bit of exercise?


I would start by experimenting with your diet and if it doesn't go away soon, definitely talk with your care provider.
