    Well I had a little scare at work today! I was doing my usual tasks at work on the till and I started to get really flushed, sweating and then bam I had this wave of nausea and faintness come over me. I leaned on the counter to steady myself and told my customers i'd be right back. I went into the office and sat before it got worse. It was such a weird feeling. So I called my doctor and I left work early so they could check me out. Everything is ok though.
    I had eaten before that and had a bottle of OJ so I had food in my stomach. So it could just be that im not drinking enough fluids. Babies heart rate is normal. But I was scared because when the doctor went to check it he couldn't find it!!! LOL so I was worried my poor baby died He's actually sitting low in my abdomen today.
    So yeah what a day. If this continues it looks like i'll have to take some time off work which would suck!!! Anyone else have this happen?

    This happened to me as well, twice. One I actually fainted, luckly my partener was in the kitchen as well. It's pretty scary but nothing really to be alarmed about. My MW said I was probabil low on iron.

    Glad you and your baby are ok:headspin:
