I have had that with this pregnancy and I also go through periods of dealing with something like that while I am not pregnant. I had to have my blood pressure tested along with a few other tests and everything came back fine, except the fact my blood pressure was a little low (which is totally normal for me). They decided that it was just some symptom of pregnancy and to just keep an eye on it. So, to me it sounds like something you may want to mention to your doctor if it happens again. It sounds like it could just be a pregnancy thing but it wouldn't hurt to let your doctor know.

It didn't happen with DD, but this time I'm getting crazy dizzy spells where I HAVE to lie down. My blood pressure is always on the low side and in early pregnancy your circulatory system is expanding but you're not yet producing enough blood to compensate for it. It should get better in a few weeks as your blood volume increases.

Thanks for all of the feedback! There is comfort in numbers! I am trying to keep eating, trying to stay hydrated, trying to be a good employee, trying to be a good mom, trying to be a good girlfriend, and trying to not lose my sanity!!
I had that happen with my last pregnancy. For me it was a low blood pressure issue. My midwife suggested that I up my salt intake a little (I had bad nausea and was barely eating), to help bring my blood pressure up some.
It happened to me ordering at Wendy's restaurant....got up to the counter and said I don't feel good and passed out hitting my head on the way down... I was so embarrassed when I came to I cried...it happened to me due to m/s and not keeping hydrated!~ Try to drink and eat even if you don't feel like it
It has happened to me a couple times while shopping.. I have had to use the electric "rascal" wheelchairs like the old people, LOL. And when I am dizzy I am not the best wheelchair driver... I run into stuff ALL OVER. Watch out people, I need milk so if you are located anywhere in that aisle, you're gonna get hit!
