Can pregnancy cause more frequent hypos?

    Hi all,

    So I'm nearly 2 weeks late but I haven't had a positive test yet. The only thing I've noticed is I've had increased hypos last week, can this be caused by pregnancy?

    Thanks!

    Hi @DiabeticPanda :)

    Possibly. I found I had higher sugars for the first couple of weeks or so, then the hypos kicked in around week 7 or 8.

    I'd keep an open mind and test again in a few days :)

    Thanks Azure! It's weird because I haven't had any pregnancy symptoms but I've just realised today that I'm so late :/

    I guess only time will tell!
