that happened to me with my last pregnancy, my blood sugar wasn't super low but it was lower, just had to snack in between meals, keep a granola bar or piece of fruit with me.... which i thought was crazy cuz the dr is always worried I'll have high blood sugar during pregnancy cuz im so over weight lol

Try eating more protein in the mornings. I'm a type one diabetic and during my pregnancy they told me to eat a mixture of carbs and protein for all meals (more protein than carbs, though) and to try balancing carbs and protein for snacks (like greek yogurt or cheese/peanut butter crackers).
