Today was my appt with my OB. They did my bp and weight. I normally have perfect bp but today it was pretty low. I haven't gained anything. I'm stagnating in my weight gain. (Tips on packing extra calories would be great please!) My OB asked me what's been new. I told her I've been feeling drunk lately, like I had too much to drink and I'm out of sorts, except I'm obviously not drinking. I told her it's like being heavily medicated. She called the feeling disassociation and ordered a poop-ton of blood work. I also told her I've been super thirsty even though I'm drinking water all.the.time. So she ordered more blood work for that.

We listened for the heartbeat, which was 140s-150s and she said I look good otherwise. So hopefully with the blood work we can find a solution for my issues and have a normal remainder of this pregnancy.

What a strange symptom. I hope they find out what is causing it as soon as possible!!

I'm glad everything looks good as far as baby is concerned

I hope they can find out what's causing it! I also had low BP and zero weight gain at my 16wk appt Tuesday, and often feel light-headed/exhausted, but I'm not thirsty or disassociated. My MW wasn't concerned about not gaining or low BP. I hope that they find out the cause! Please update us, I may want to question my MW about the same thing since I'm having it happen to me minus a couple of symptoms. I almost passed out today several seconds after standing. Thank goodness the table was there for me to grab or I would've went down.

I hope this is an easy fix for you!!!

Hopefully they'll figure out what's going on! I wouldn't worry much about no weight gain at this point. Better than too much gain like i'm dealing with. Sigh

KUP!

I used to get faint feeling all the time when I was pg with DD. I kept a 2-litre of coke in the fridge at all times bc it seemed to knock the feeling the fastest. I know its not healthy but it worked!

I hope all of you feeling this way get to feeling better and figure out what is going on with it!

Glad the baby's okay! Let us know what the blood-work results are. Earlier in pregnancy I felt like that too, not the thirsty part, but just feeling out of it, like my head was floating and stuff. I'm not feeling that way much anymore, but still curious what it could be related to.
