OK so I'm 21 weeks, I normally eat well but I ate a particularly sweet slice of cake recently and about half an hour after I felt REVOLTING! Like I was overheating, heart pounding, dizzy, going to vomit.... It passed pretty quickly and needless to say I wont be eating any more sweet food in a hurry.Does this sound like gestational diabetes? My next docs appt is in a few days - should I see somebody sooner, or should I ask the doc for any tests? I will call the hospital tomorrow and speak to a midwife anyway

I'm not sure sorry. However this is exactly how I felt during my glucose tolerance test on Wednesday and they told me it wasn't necessarily a bad thing as far as GD is concerned. But to be on the safe side and for piece of mind just call the hospital to check.

Ok, i dont think it is. Check to be on the safe side but i think if this cake was high GI and you did not combine it with something low GI or had it within an hour of alow GI meal that this could be the normal sugar slump. When you eat something high GI and do not combine it with something to balance it out, you give off an overload of insulan to digest it, the insulin does not stop being secreted immediately and keeps digesting more sugar from your blood****** causing a sugar dip, making you feel out of breath, tired or just plain yuk. If you do this often enough it will cause serious health issues.
