    Default dizziness this morning

    I went to church by myself this moring because ds & dh were still asleep. About halfway through, whenever I tried to stand, I got very light headed & dizzy & felt like I was going to puke. I tried to push through it, but eventually I had to leave because I was afraid I was going to faint. When I got home I called my doctor, who happened to be the doctor on call today. She asked me what I had had to eat & drink today (I had to admit only coffee & a muffin ). She said I was dehydrated. I'm sure she's right because I did not drink any water this morning. So she said to rest today & hydrate.

    Now I'm laying in bed w/a big jug of water. I still feel dizzy but not as bad as before.

    I feel a little silly for not taking better care of myself. Anyway, I thought I would share in case anyone else has the same situation. I know I have been bad in the mornings. I just can't break my caffeine addiction. Looks like I will force myself now

    I still drink a cup of coffee almost daily, but I try to make sure that I drink a big glass of water first. During my first tri, I completely lost my taste for coffee and didn't even want any, but I'm drinking it again, one cup a day.

    Hopefully, the rest and extra water will get you back on your feet. Feel better soon!!

    I've fainted about 11 times in the last week. Usually from sitting up to fast. (When I was younger from like birth until 25 or so I had really low BP all the time and had fainting issues.) My doctor thinks that now that my BP is low again this is why it's happening. He said if it continues he'll have to put me on bedrest just for the safe side.

    Hopefully relaxing and water will help you.

    I'm sorry that you had a rough morning, but I'm glad you're feeling better now! Be sure to take it easy!

    Yep, I had the same problem a few weeks ago, and the doc said the same thing... drink water! Crazy how a little dehydration or lack of food can affect you when you are pregnant! Hope you are feeling better today!

    Thanks for sharing - I get dizzy every day and its so hard to do anything fast. I had no idea this is why it was happening.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    The first words out of my doctor's mouth were; "This is very common!"

    I had no idea either! I had my big glass-o-water this morning

    I'm still drinking coffee too (glad I'm not the only one!!) and I have definitely felt the same way if I don't drink tons of water with it. I hope you feel better soon!! Take care
