Icecream for dinner:disaster.

So, this is one of those "duh" moments of my pregnancy.

I had Fiber One cereal yesterday morning and just felt off and kind of crampy all day from it. DH wanted to treat me last night to an icecream sundae at a new little icecream place. I hadn't had dinner, or eaten in about 3 hours but I figured, what the hey, get my calcium in!

After the sundae, DH felt like a cheeseburger (don't we sound like fata$$es!) so we were in the drive thru when I felt NOT so hot. Baby was kicking up a storm like he was on the sugar rush of a life time, and I WALKED out of the drive thru from the car and went to the bathroom inside, where I proceeded to cramp and begin to pass out on the toilet.

This led me to LAY ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR  OF A PUBLIC RESTROOM so that I didn't fall off the toilet and kill myself.

I felt a bit better once I lay down and was able to get to the car and head home. I felt better last night, but this morning I'm still feeling kind of Eh.

I'm guessing it was a combo of too much fiber and nothing but sugar for dinner.

I know,  I feel like an idiot and I'll never do that again. Anyone have a weird sugar fainting story like this? Also, I showered as soon as I got home after the bathroom floor incident.

  • Bless your heart!  You had to have been feeling bad to lay on that floor.  Glad you are feeling better today.  I haven't had anything crazy like that happen yet, but then again, I usually make DH go out to get stuff instead of going with him.  Now I have a perfectly valid reason, I'll just tell him - hey, you don't want me to end up lying on the floor of a public bathroom do you? :)
  • Yep, I had a similar situation back when I was 11 weeks pregnant.  Didn't feel too well on Saturday night, so just had some toast and an Ensure for dinner.  On Sunday morning, I ate a glazed donut for breakfast and nothing else.  I went to church a couple of hours later, and right towards the end of mass, I started to feel really sick, hot and dizzy, then proceeded to completely black out!  I smacked my head on the pew in front of where I was sitting, then came to.  I know the whole thing probably lasted only seconds, but it felt like an eternity to me!  I called my doctor the next day and he said that my blood sugar must have been too low - needless to say, I have been very careful about what I've been eating since then, and haven't had any repeat fainting spells.  Still scary though!!!image
