I'm 5 weeks 3 days pregnant. For the past few days i've been really dizzy and light headed. I cannot concentrate at all and my breathing is short and fast. Anyone experiencing this or have any ideas if this is normal?

I have been very very dizzy, nearly every time I stand up I have to clutch a wall. I spoke to my doctor about it, and she said that at this time, our bodies are making 40-50% more blood than usual, and it is all directed to baby first. So, she said being a little dizzy was ok but it means we should be drinking way more fluids and she even suggested trying a bit more salt.

I get dizzy when I stand up, and I get out of breath more easily when i am active, like I feel really out of shape. My heart also often feels like it is "pounding". I had this with my last pregnancy too and was also told it was due to the increased blood supply and blood pumping to the baby.

Thank you Alethia for my siggy!

i know I get dizzy when my blood sugar gets low. Are you eating enough? That could be one possibility.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Drink Drink Drink too! I keep a jug of crystal light out and with me. If I see it I am more likely to keep drinking all day long. Hope you feel better!!
