I don't post a lot, but I lurk all the time. I'm 12 weeks now, and about a week ago I started feeling super dizzy, lightheaded, and weak, with the occassional headache and nausea due to the first 3 symptoms mentioned. Now, the day before this started I had just gotten back from a cruise, so I understood the dizziness from regaining my land legs, but the other symptoms fit the anemic symptoms. I thought for sure I had anemia because I've had it with my other 2 pregnancies and that's exactly how it feels, but I went and got my blood checked and the iron is at 13, and they say 10 is a good number. So I'm not anemic and it's not getting any better. Any ideas on what could be wrong with me?!?

Sounds like dehydration.
I think me and a couple of the girls touched this a couple weeks ago.
I felt the less I drank, the more the headaches came.
Yours could me more like migraines which are making you light-headed and dizzy.
Do you often have to lay in a dark room? Or put something over your eyes?
High or low blood pressure does that too. Good luck!!

I have low blood sugar and they said it could cause it. I have to keep some kind of life savers or crackers with me at all time because it hits me all of a sudden. I get it a lot in stores with the heat. It could be a lot a reasons, most of the time they will not have a definite reason for it. I wish I could help, but see if a cracker or a sip of sugar stuff helps.
