Dizziness in early PG

I was wondering if anyone else has suffered from severe dizzy spells? they are getting worse and it's gettin to the point I'm scared to drive. I mentioned to my GP today as I was at my booking in appointment and he told me that I'm not as young as I was when I had my first child (I'm only blinking 28) then he said that they will take bloods at my 12 week scan which is approx Jan 09, I cant be like this until then :sadface:. I never had anything like this with DD but I suppose that no pregnancy is the same. xx

Hiya Debs,

Sorry you're feeling so dizzy hon. Just wanted to say that I'm about 5 weeks PG and have noticed I'm feeling quite light-headed sometimes lately. Hopefully your doc can check you out and maybe it'll pass eventually? If you're worried about driving tho I would probably not drive to be extra sure.

Hope you're feeling better soon,

I was very light headed and tired but it should pass. Although Id have thought your Dr could have been a little more helpful. x

i too get light headed and disorientated, i feel quite spaced out at times. usually its when i am in a busy place, i e supermarket, and all the lights are bright and i am trying to look at things but it seems theres too much information to take in and it goes blurry!
glad to hear it will pass as its not very enjoyable when it happens!

Have you had your BP checked? Mine has been on the low side throughout my pregnancy and this has contributed to dizziness.


ttc since July 06. 8 cycles of clomid. BFP on cycle 5 (Dec 07) ended in m/c at 9.5 weeks. Second BFP on cycle 8 (May 08)

Your blood pressure drops in pregnancy because of the increased volume of blood circulating in your body. The dizziness should pass as your body becomes used to the changes. Be careful when you stand up, doing it too quickly can cause you to fall over! It is very noral though. I am amazed that your doc didn't even mention that! Some doctors need to go back to medical school or take some public relations lessons.

It can be normal for your BP to be low due to the hormone relaxin making all your blood vessels dilate. Make sure you are eating as well as you can and getting enough fluid to drink as dehydration and low blood sugar will make it worse. I think if its making you scared to drive, you need to go back to your GP and get him to check your BP. His comment about your age is hardly helpful, cheeky man.
