Ugh I am so nervous! I have been dizzy a lot the past few days and its driving me nuts. This is how my drama started last pregnancy so I'm walking on eggshells. BUT I do know it's normal to a certain extent in pregnancy so I'm hoping its just normal stuff and won't get worse.

Any ideas on how to make it better? I have a lot of errands to do today and I'm kind of nervous to be driving around with the kiddos.

*hugs* Being dizzy is so scary! That's how I ended up in the ER that one time!

For me, I just made sure I didn't get overheated, drank lots of fluid, stayed full if I could manage... stand up slowly, and try to not sit for extended periods of time. That's all I really know though Getting too hot was a huge factor in mine, so getting cooler usually did the trick

What was the drama with your last pregnancy? I've been dizzy the last few days and I do NOT like it. I've never been dizzy in pregnancy. It makes me nervous.

I get dizzy when pregnant and it sucks. I have low blood pressure issues so that's what they always said it was. Keep eating, maybe suck on some candy or sip some sprite or water... I hope it passes for you.

Thanks for the replies ladies. I have some ginger ale I'm going to stick in the freezer and open some windows.

Last pregnancy I had several syncopal (fainting) episodes....like 50 total. It was crazy and very scary. We tried everything to figure it out and by the end of the pregnancy narrowed it down to a severe case of gestational diabetes. My body responded to high blood sugar by releasing too much insulin too fast, making my blood sugar plummet and me pass out. We figured this out through trial and error during my hospital stay because they started giving me diabetes medication and preventative insulin and the passing out stopped. It was a mess. I went into pre term labor and hurt myself a few times from falling

I really hope it doesn't happen again. I have an appointment today so I'm going to see if my ob thinks I need to start insulin again.
