Hey girls, my name is Kristen I am from Oct DDC and I'll be 26 weeks tomorrow. I am going for my glucose test on the 20th so I'll tell my midwife about it then. I am 29 yrs old I have only gained 5lbs so far, never had a history of diabetes and this is my 4th pregnancy. I know you can get it in one pregnancy and not in others. The other night I woke up with the worlds WORST taste in my mouth, I actually got up and brushed my teeth and garggled with mouth wash. Then my lips and tongue got tingly and I got very shakey jittery and then freezing cold. I asked my chiropractor about it today and she said it might be a sign of GD. So i figured I'd hop on here and ask you ladies for any advice you might have. Thanks!
Thanks for the quick response! Sorry the 1st post was so poorly written I typed it up super quick while on the phone and about to run out the door to go get my kids from VBS and I didn't get a chance to re-read it until now LOL!!!
I personally have my doubts that it's GD too since I do have bouts with my sugar dropping and I know that feeling of needing something to eat so I don't pass out but this was a totally different feeling. I called my midwife just a bit ago and asked her what she thought about it and she felt confident that it was probably just stomach acid or even my sinus's draining causing the issues. I am praying that's the case because as I'm sure every pregnant mom agrees, no one actually wants GD! Thanks again for the quick response!
