Blood sugar just dropped to 31??

I started insulin injections yesterday morning, I take 20 unitsof Novolin N and 10 units of Novolin R. I have been eating exactly according to the meal plan the Diabetes educator gave me, and I had a snack of cottage cheese, cashews and almonds before I went to bed at midnight.

I have been eating exactly according to the meal plan the Diabetes educator gave me, and I had a snack of cottage cheese, cashews and almonds before I went to bed at midnight. But, I just woke up out of a sound sleep all dizzy and feeling weird, so I got up to grab my glucose meter and eveything went black. I sat down because I felt faint, when I felt like I could see again I grabbed my meter out of my purse and checked--it was a 31. So, I chewed a bunch of glucose tabs and then ate some string cheese...after that I felt a lil better so I made some eggs. I feel okay now, just have a monster headache and still feel a little shaky. Is it normal to drop like that at night even after I had a snack less than 2 hours ago? Could I still be adjusting to the insulin, even though I took it at 9 am, and its going on 2 am now? Any help or suggestions would be great! Thank you!
Update: Thanks, I'll definitely be calling my doctor in the morning. I haven't cut out all carbs though, Breakfast I have 1-2 carb group, morning snack 1-2, lunch 3-4, afternoon snack 1-2, dinner 3-4 and late snack 1-2. I thought cottage cheese fell in that range because of the lactose found in dairy?? I'm so... show more Thanks, I'll definitely be calling my doctor in the morning.

Oh, and my insurance will cover more than this kind...is there a better or different one I should be asking about?

What's a sliding scale and how would I figure that out?

I'm 20 weeks pregnant so my biggest concern is the health of the baby while going through all these adjustments!
