Every time I eat, but especially bad in the mornings, I feel fine, eat on the smallish side of a meal(ie half a serving usually fills me up) and then just a little bit later, I feel awful. It feels like when you are really weak from not eating in awhile and on speed at the same time. If that makes any sense...I feel weak and shaky, plus dizzy and just a tad groggy. My sugar is fine, there weren't any problems with the glucose test. Why do I feel so weird and what can I do to make it go away???? I had this with my last pregnancy too, and the only thing the docs could say was that maybe my uterus is pressing more on my spine so when I eat there's less room so it pushes more. But I'm really not as big now as I was with him, so I dunno. I just know I feel really bad and it is interfering with work, which is not a good thing. Any ideas? Oh and also, I am downing water so I don't think its a dehydration thing. This kinda sucks, and just adds to the ok I'm ready for full term to GET HERE ALREADY feeling....
i dont know how to help you at all, and im looking forward to the repsonses you get from this thread. I know EXACTLY how you feel, and i think you explained the way i feel better than i ever could. i am having this same problem, but i just chalked it up to end of pregnancy morning sickness? ive never had m/s so i wasnt sure....
i don't have the weak feeling after i eat, but i do feel really nauseous and like the room is spinning a bit. i wouldn't think it was blood sugar related, but i guess you never know. our pregnant bodies do some strange things!
I have this EXACT same issue, my OB asked me if maybe i was eating to much "sugary" foods at one sitting but i dont, i havent been able to find a solution, but it gets bad sometimes when i meet DH for lunch if we sit there for a few before leaving i'll start to get the weak/light headed feeling and have to sit there for a few before leaving.... Im def. curious to see if anyone has any advice to offer

If you eat again, will it make you feel better? You may want to try keeping something small (and healthy) to snack on bit by bit through out the day. Maybe keep some crackers, grapes, raisins, etc. handy.

I do that usually, just because I feel hungry pretty often. Honestly, I haven't found anything that consistently makes it better, sometimes if I eat again its better, sometimes it makes it worse. Sometimes (TMI ALERT!) if I go to the bathroom its better, but not always. I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels like this though-at least I'm not alone!
i know that feeling. i havent had it this pregnancy. by any chance do you see spots or anyhting? could be nothing, but might be your blood pressure every now and then making you feel that way. no clue though. i knwo your blood pressure can be fine most of the time and sometimes just go up (or down) so thats something they wouldnt know in your drs office unless they took your blood pressure while you felt that way to be able to rule it out. sounds like how i was with my pregnancy with my son. it started at 33 weeks for me, but blood pressure issues can arise at any time.
yah i just had a salad with fat free i talian dressing with carrots, cucumbers and borccoli on it and two huge glasses of water since ive been awake, and i am feeling this way again....i had my salad about a half hour ago and now im miserable....
im super dizzy, but super wound up, like that "speed" feeling you described, but i feel wobbly and weak and im having hot flashes, and i just took my bp and it seemed normal, i also passed my gtt test ,so i dont know what this could be?? ill ask on the 24th when i go for my dr appt...this has been happening to me everytime i eat for the past 2 weeks, i thought it was mexican food at first because i was having bathroom problems, but now im all cleared up and its worse.....sigh....this sucks....
just a little update, supper and lunch--same problem within 1/2 an hour of finishing. One was a smaller meal, one was larger. I am asking the docs about it Monday morning. I will update this if I find anything out. I hope we can all feel better soon. This is making me just not want to eat!!!
i feel the exact same way too, i actually left work early for maternity leave because i was feeling weak, dizzy, nauseaus and all that, and i thought maybe i was working too hard. i work in laundry at a hotel and it involves alot of walking, standing and handling hot laundry so i thought it was too much. so when i went to my last docs appointment i mentioned it to him and he told me that some dizziness is common in pregnancy but if it gets worse or keeps happening than they would be concerned. i did have blood work done about a month ago to check for anemia and blood sugar but it was all normal. i still get dizzy spells since finishing work. but since alot of us are experiencing the same thing it may be one of those pesky pregnancy problems but its always best to get checked just in case its something serious.
