Feeling faint & out of breath? Sugar or blood pressure?

With this pregnancy I've been feeling faint and out of breath. I feel fine one second than it hits me like a wave I begin to get very warm and nauseated and I feel very faint. It's hard to explain. The nurse said it may be my sugar or blood pressure. They are going to have me do the glucose test next week (16 weeks) as opposed to waiting until the 28th week.

anybody else have similar problems?

Re: Feeling faint & out of breath? Sugar or blood pressure?

I had the same problem and was told that I am hypoglycemic. I had to limit my intake of simple carbs and substitute those for complex carbs (whole wheat vs. white) and eat LOTS of protein (milk, cheese, veggies, chicken...) I found that I got hungry less often and I didn't get those "lows" with the lightheadedness and nausea. The whole wheat english muffins are delicious...

Re: Feeling faint & out of breath? Sugar or blood pressure?

The nurse also said I may be hypoglycemic. I guess the glucose test will tell. I've been trying to stick w/ whole wheat as opposed to white and more proteins. It doesn't work all the time. But I making more of an effort now.

I like the honey wheat english muffins. They're really good. And wonderbread makes a whole grain white. I've been using that lately. It's great and makes good french toast.

What else is described as a simple sugar or starchier food product? I can't seem to clarify this.

This is my 3rd pregnancy and I've had this problem with them all, I don't know what causes it my blood pressure is always fine, along with everything else. but as soon as I have the baby it stops so I guess its just my bodys way of reacting when pregnant.
