Dizziness, symptom of pregnancy

Is dizziness a sign of pregnancy?

Some women experience dizziness in early pregnancy. However, generally dizziness in pregnancy usually occurs in the second or third trimester. Dizziness is not a classic symptom of pregnancy. Typical symptoms of pregnancy include one or more missed periods (amenorrhea), breast tenderness, nausea or vomiting, and urinary frequency

What causes dizziness in early pregnancy?

During pregnancy, blood volume (the amount of blood in the body) increases thirty percent. Conversely, lung capacity (or how much air your lungs can hold) decreases five percent. This can cause symptoms of shortness of breath and occasionally dizziness as well.

Other causes of dizziness

Orthostatic hypotension, low blood pressure that occurs when changing from a sitting position to a standing position (or lying position to sitting position), is a common cause of dizziness. Low blood sugar and inner ear infections are another cause of dizziness.
