I was just standing at the kitchen sink doing dishes, and I got really hot and dizzy. I also felt really weak. I got a water bottle and am now sitting on the couch in front of the AC. I know lightheadedness is common, but I don't know what this was!

Called the Dr. Told me to eat peanut butter!! lol!

I know sometimes I can get lightheaded if I stand up too fast. Or you could just be really hot and need water. Rest for a while and see how you feel.

That happened to me a lot in the beginning of this pregnancy. Sometimes I would even have to hold on to the wall or furniture to brace myself for fear of falling over. Freaked me out!

I actually have had that several times recently & mentioned it at my appt today... the first thing the dr asked was whether I was keeping hydrated... I most definitely am, so the next thing she discussed was my diet, which is kind of awful, so she said I likely wasn't getting enough protein... That might be why your dr suggested peanut butter...

My OB also is having me go in for some blood work, although she seems pretty sure it's that I'm not getting enough nutrients...

I think it's something more than just heat. I drink a lot of water, and I eat ok. I throw in fruits all day long with yogurt and granola. I also like pizza rolls a lot recently hahaa. I'm sure I just need to get my diet on track. My mom thinks I have an infection in my mouth. I need a root canal, so I made an appt for tomorrow to get it checked out. Hopefully it was nothing, and my mouth is ok!

No not since the other day. I think it was due to an infection in my tooth that I didn't know I had!!! I got a root canal yesterday, so hopefully I'll start feeling better soon. Thank you for checking in =]
