My ds is 6 mo old - today!
I've always had a little bit of a hard time with hypoglycemia on and off. Usually, once I eat I feel much better. While I was preggo, however, I had a couple of episodes where I had a hard time shaking the hypoglycemia feeling (felt really ill) even though I was eating and eating. That was mostly during first and early second trimester.
But, over the last couple of weeks, I've had this happen a few times again. Last Saturday, I just couldn't shake the syptoms (lightheaded, nauseous, palps, shaky, hungry, weak) for at about 3-4 hours. Even though I kept eating.
Today and yesterday, again, no matter how much I eat, my stomach still has that hungry feeling and I am having some of those hyopoglycemia symtoms. In the past 2.45 hours I've eaten:
1. A bowl of oatmeal w/ mangos
2. A slice of whole wheat bread with peanut butter and jelly
3. A piece of cheese
4. A good amount of walnuts and raisins
AND I'm still hungry and feeling icky.
Is this a breastfeeding thing? Anyone else have these probs? It is a tad bit worrisome.
