From Kountze, Texas, USA:

I am a 32 year old female, I am 14 weeks pregnant with my third child, and I have had several symptoms of hypoglycemia but only recently connected them. Could I be tested for hypoglycemia without putting the baby in any harm?


Testing your blood sugar at various times is not any risk to the baby. You should discuss your symptoms with your doctor to determine if it is worth evaluating you for hypoglycemia.
