Dizzy, shaky???


I've just been out in the garden for about 20 mins doing a clean up (after the dogs) so moving about but staying in the same position - a little stooped over as the pooper scooper realy isnt long enough, got a bit warm too.
Now I feel a little bit dizzy and my hands are a little bit shaky.
Is this normal? Well I don't mean normal but I mean could it just be from getting too warm and shuffling round the garden in a stooped over position?

Just going to get OH to make me a hot choc and go and read baby & pregnancy see if I feel any better if not I might call my out of hours MW number. Oh, or wait for neighbour to get home shes a nurse and use to be a MW.

I had this a couple weeks back. I think it's normal, what with the weather being how it is at the moment. Have some chill out time and if you still don't feel right then call your out of hours MW

Your blood pressure is probably a little low, we also normally get decreased iron during pregnancy. Try to drink lots of water and eating something helps. I have had this happen to me a few times, especially if I have been on my feet and standing in the same position for a long time.

I get a little lightheaded sometimes, hot, shaky, woozy.... thinks we're in that 'funny' stage of pregnancy, plus blood sugar levels tend to get low. Also a lack of oxygen to the head can make us feel lightheaded and faint. Put your feet up and have some choccy and a cuppa! xxx

Its normal to get lightheaded and dizzy, as its all the extra blood pumping to your babys placenta. You need to take it a little more easy when doing house chores etc, especially picking up dog poo which could be potentially harmful to your bub, Id wear plastic gloves if i were you

Sounds like possible low blood sugar. I had gestational diabetes with my daughter, and when I took my insulin, if I didn't eat enough...I would get shakey and dizzy. Then I would have a juice...and all would be well. Anyone can get low blood sugar, they don't have to be on insulin...the overheating and bending over probably didn't help. Glad you are feeling better. If you get that again...make sure you take a juice and small snack with you in your purse when you go out.
