I woke up around 1am to go to the bathroom. I was feeling really hungry so I went to the kitchen to get a snack, but I started feeling really sick. I thought, "great, here's the ms I've been wanting." But, the nausea turned into extreme dizziness, and I felt a rush of tingly hotness rush throughout my body. I knew this wasn't good. My vision was blurred and I was hearing static sounds. I went the bedroom and woke my husband up. I went to the bathroom and sat in the floor, it was all getting worse. I told him to call his mom, she's an RN, but he didn't think it I was really going to pass out. I did pass out and when I came to, he was saying, "Amy, what are you doing?" I was feeling really good at that point and had no clue that I passed out, so I was like "what are you talking about?" I passed out again, that time he said I was grunting. Weird. After that, I felt some better. So I drank a bottle of water and ate a poptart. I figured it probably had something to do with food or water.

Anyway, we went to the ER and it turned out that I was dehydrated. Surprise. I spent 4 hours there so he could finally tell me that after criticizing me about not having a clue how many calories I ate a day. They did blood work and an EKG.

Shew, I never want to feel like that again. It was the worst feeling ever.

The same thing has happened to me a few times. Only twice when I passed out I hit my head on a hard surface & woke up thinking I was dying because of the intense pain. They told me it was a result of dehydration too. I have to be very careful when I'm preg because I get dehydrated easier. I try to drink lots of water and I hardly ever drink soda or coffee. It completely freaks out dh, but now I've figured when I get that feeling I need to immediately sit down. Unfortunately the last time I did sit down, but my head still hit the door near me!

I'm glad you are okay! I've had that happen before too when I was pregnant with my first. Huge hugs.

Super scary! Glad your okay. I had the same thing happen this past week, a couple of times. I had had the stomach flu and was barely keeping liquids down and got so dizzy and sick making DD breakfast that I passed out. Now it's starting to happen in the mornings (not passing out, but close) so I keep juice beside my bed and as soon as I wake up I go to the fridge and eat a quick snack before I start getting too dizzy

very scary! I've never passed out. Now that you think back, had you not really drank much water that day?

That is so scary! And worrisome since you passed out twice in a row! I imagine that is probably why they checked to make sure your heart is okay. I have been pretty close to fainting since I got pregnant too! Take it easy hun and feel better Glad you are okay!
