Okay so this morning I walked my dog, like usual for half an hour. Ten minutes after I got home I started sweating really bad, like my feet, face, arms, under boobs, every where. I was like wtf. And then I noticed I was all shaky and weak feeling. Like it was hard to put mascara on. While on my walk I was feeling hungry (as I usually do and have a snack once I get home, cuz at that point I already had breakfast) so I was thinking maybe I just needed food. But I have never had this happen. After about 15-20 minutes the sweating stopped and since its cold outside I was freezing. I ate some peanut butter and crackers and sipped water. I still feel slightly weak but not as bad as before. My mom said it sounded like a hot flash. I'm worried. What the hell happened to me? Is it normal? How do I prevent it? Anyone else have this happen?
I'm at work now. Not fun. DH told me to go home just to be safe.
I don't usually have lo blood sugar problems. I ate yogurt and cereal right before the walk. And Its the same half hour walk I have taken for the last three years :/ I do have anxiety but I have never had it randomly like that or the sweating. I'm feeling okish now. Just feel kind tired.
Yeah I drank a whole bottle of water with breakfast. But I know I don't drink as much as I'm supposed to. I actually have a class at my hosital today for nutrition and exercise while pregnant oddly enough. I have my 19 week scan on Thursday, and I was already worried about everything being okay. Blah
Could be related to blood sugar, even if you don't usually have those problems. The baby uses your blood sugar supply so things can be alot different than when you were not pregnant.
I have had a low blood sugar problem, only since becoming pregnant. For me, it causes racing heart rate and shortness of breath. I didn't recognize it as low blood sugar because the symptoms seemed out of proportion with my hunger. Resulted in me getting an ECG, EKG, lung xray, plus more tests--all normal. Finally figured out that if I ate at the first sign of hunger, or first sign of feeling "off", I could control it. Now I am a new woman!
I am sure you should ask your doctor anyway, but hopefully my experience reassures you a little!
