I was wondering if anyone has experienced dizzy spells. I was out at a worksite today and was standing around talking to the site supervisor. It was warm but not hot and I hadn't been doing a lot of walking, mostly standing for most of the morning. Suddenly I started feeling really light headed and nauseous. I excused myself and walked toward my truck, I didn't even think I would make it before passing out!! Thankfully I just made it, plopped down in the seat and had a cold drink of water and some food, which helped. After about 2 minutes I felt better again but stayed nauseous and sort of weak for the rest of the morning.
This sort of scared me as I am normally real active and this "weak" feeling is new to me. I felt way better last Saturday and thought I was finally past the "feeling crappy stage". I am 10 weeks today... I hope that was a one time occurrence. Anyone else experience this?
definitely talk to your doctor! dizziness, IMO, should be taken somewhat seriously until you're sure its nothing.
my blood pressure runs low, my systolics are normally in the 90's. it usually doesn't bother me, EXCEPT when im pregnant. ive already fainted 3x this pregnancy. i had this with Luke too or id probably be freaked out. just be very careful when you first stand up. it takes about 3-5 seconds normally for you body to re-calibrate your blood pressure when you go from sitting to standing.
you could also get dizzy if your pressure is too high, if something is wrong with your heart or your blood sugar. definitely talk with your doctor before deciding its a normal pregnancy symptom. hope you feel better!

I have had this all day today. The other day when I was driving my eyes suddenly got blurry and i couldn't see the signs and I got dizzy because of it. Totally freaks me out. Sucks pretty bad not knowing why all of this happens, just that it's normal. Yuck.
I haven't had any dizzyness, but it is a common symptom in pregnancy. Just make sure you stay plenty hydrated and eat 5 small meals a day instead of three big ones... that should help!
