I have had this problem a lot this pregnancy. As long as you treat your lows the baby is totally safe, so don't worry about that. I'm actually treating a 47 as I type.
Generally the way to prevent lows is to take less insulin, change what you are eating, or have a snack to prevent them. I have just come to expect lows at certain times and try to have a snack before they hit. Today I had a surprise nap, so I crashed.
I'm on Glyburide and having early AM lows even with me eating a bowl of before bed (around 30-40grams of carbs), but nothing as low as 47... holy cow! My lows are in the 50s usually and usually in the early AM. I wake up with this urge to clean out my fridge.
Thanks ladies for your input...I haven't really changed my diet any...I usually have no more than 45 carbs at a meal and plenty of proteing...currently I am on glyburide...a total of 15 mg...1 5 mg tablet before breakfast and 2 5 mg tablets before dinner...today when I woke up thankfully my blood glucose was at a 75 not so bad...unfortunately though he has me testing at the two hour mark so I can't really increase my snacks until after I have tested...I have an appointment on monday so we will see what he says

My appointment went ok...he is actually backing me off some of the glyburide now...I just hope it is not too drastic of a change...I know insulin is not the worst thing but I was hoping to be able to control this so that I would not have to happen...anyways
