Low blood sugar?: Sometimes people can have reactive hypoglycemia. This is low blood sugar that happens after eating. I have seen many pregnant patients with this. It is recommended to eat frequent small meals during the day high in fiber, protein, with low glycemic index. Also make sure you have been screened for gestational diabetes. See your provider, they may want you to check your sugar during an episode.
