That happened a lot to me too. I was concerned enough to tell my doctor about it. He told me it's actually pretty common. If I remember right, it got a little better, but never actually went away completely until I had delivered. Then it started again when I went on bp meds, but that's another story. Sorry to say, it might just be one of those grin and bear it kind of things...[xx(]

It can also be a sign of your BP dropping quickly and it doens't have to be a large number drop either. So if your at like 140/90 and it then plummets to 140/80 it may cause you dizziness.

I used to get it alot when I was pregnant the second time around.

Could it be a sign of anemia? I felt that way on and off with my pregnancy for a bit and everyone told me to add Cream of Wheat into my breakfast routine for some extra iron. Now that I am typing this though, I can't remember for sure if it made me feel any better or not [:0] so, I guess I am not much help! Just a thought though!

Hope you're feeling better soon! It sounds like you have your hands full...[;)]

Dizzy when resting????

This may be a little off topic...

I am sooo darn dizzy when resting. Either sitting or laying down. I have no energy to be up all day though. The last couple of nights Will has been up frequently. Still dont sleep throuhg the night, but that is another support group needed. [:p]>:) Anyway, I thought I was going to fall over laying down. If that is possible! lol Then to get up, forget it! I thought my BP was maybe falling too low. But it isn't. (140/80 or so.) Sinus infection, maybe?!? I am starting to display some other sinus problems. Has anyone else ever had this happen in a pregnancy?? New to me, that is for sure!
