I've had this happen to me in all three of my pregnancies now, but only once or twice, and never this late (I'm 30 weeks now) -- where I wake up in the middle of the night shaking violently from head to toe, from low blood sugar. I can't do anything except call my dh to get me something to eat.<br><br>
Does anyone else have this, and does it indicate anything in your experience? Is it just from not eating enough before bedtime, or is it just random? Anything that can/should be done about it?

Sounds like you need more minerals in your diet.<br><br>
A great place to start is calcium/magnesium. I have had to take it daily this pregnancy to keep muscle cramps and shakes from hitting.<br><br>
Also look at your diet. Upping the fresh veggies and protein can help get the good stuff in too. Try to eliminate soda, it strips your body of minerals.<br><br>
Switch to sea salt (full of minerals) instead of regular salt. Make sure you are using enough. Low salt intake late in pregnancy can be a problem too.<br><br>
(All advice I am having a hard time following this pregnancy...this baby is the junk food baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> .)
