34 weeks - anyone else feeling dizzy/faint/short of breath??


I am 34 weeks now and keep having dizzy spells for no reason at all.
I was just washing up the breakfast things and felt wobbly and 'detatched' so had a glass of water and sat down.
The dizzyness is usually followed by a shortness of breath where my breathing becomes faster but shallow. I slow it down by in through the nose out through the mouth but the dizzy feeling continues.
What can be causing it? its so difficult doing anything because when I get up again it comes back
Never had this before.
My BP is low (as always - 90/50, hasn't changed in any appointments), iron is fine, apparently rather high but not so high to worry.
I have no swelling, all tests fine (done on wednesday).
Really confused. Anyone else suffering???

I started feeling that way when I was about 33-34 weeks, and have felt that way every other day (or every day on a bad week) my BP is usually fine and haven't really got any other health issues, but i AM anemic, so that may explain it for me.
I don't think its unusual or uncommon to start feeling this way late in the third trimester, but if it gets to be severe to the point where it interferes with day-to-day living, I would call your doctor just in case

Absolutely. It's really frustrating. I have been having troubles on and off throughout this pregnancy and was the same with my son as well.
I don't know what is causing it for me as everything looks pretty good according to my doc. Just goes with being pregnant I guess.

maybe ur body is just telling u to sit down & relax. Sometimes we work around like normal forgetting we need to take it easy. I get short of breath when I first lay down for sleep, lasts about 5 mins and a few tosses and turns until i find a comfortable position. xx

I get this too, like lunarsea, I blame in on anaemia because there's nothing else like bp problems or anything

I have been the same way, and all my test and BP have come back normal through out the pregnancy... I think its just my body telling me to rest, that I cannot do everything I use to. I forget that while at work I cant pick up the kids like I use to or bend over easily haha
