That's me. Didn't eat in the last few hours? Drop... Been standing longer than 30 min? Drop... Get just a tiny bit hot? Drop... UGH! I'm done with this! I'm bringing snacks with me to every class, drinking plenty of water, and taking breaks when needed. But come on, sometimes a line is unavoidable. I was waiting in the bookstore to buy my books and down I went. Standing in line at the financial aid office, and whoops there I go again. Luckily I can feel it coming so I can squat down and catch myself so I don't actually fall. But COME ON! I feel like I need a button that says, "I'm pregnant, please don't call 911 if I faint" People get so nervous when you pass out lol I know I'm fine, baby is fine, I'm not worried. I am however tired of being on the groud so much.

are they monitoring your BP??? I know when mine would go up I would drop too....you might want to bring that up and they can have you walk or stand for a while to see what your BP is doing

Honestly. You should go to your Dr. That happened to me toward the end of my pregnancy with DD and I was actually having heart arrhythmias. I had to be monitored by a cardiologist during my pregnancy and during delivery too. I passed out and fell down the stairs once. It can be dangerous. They also no longer let me drive. You really should talk to your dr

That sucks...but that much frequent fainting spells does need to be checked out by the Dr. Sugar or BP are the usual culprits. Hope you feel better!

It's not that big of a deal. I'm not falling flat on my back or anything. Just a nice little darkening and woosy feeling. NEVER happens when I'm sitting so driving is not a danger. My BP is normal, has been normal, never deviates from normal lol

Best advice I've been given is just take it easy, eat regularly, drink regularly, and sit down if I've been up too long.

Fainting seems like a big deal to me! I would definitely talk to your doctor!

I would make sure your dr. knows what's going on, too. You might be hypoglycemia or have *low* blood pressure, or some other heart issue. Getting light-headed sometimes or fainting once is not a big red flag. But passing out (or even blacking out) very frequently, is something you should check out.

I get light-headed a lot and it's really annoying but I don't suddenly pass out or black out.
