    I don’t know if this is a true complication of pregnancy but I just figured I’d ask in case someone had a similar experience.

    Over the past few weeks I noticed that at various points of the day I would feel dizzy, tired, almost ill with a fever (but no actual fever!) even a bit nauseous. Now I’ve realized this happens after my meals, and it seems worse at lunch but can happen after dinner. Around an hour after my meals is when I start to see spots (not severe but I wouldn’t attempt to drive anyway). My blood pressure is within normal range.

    I do get migraines but the symptoms are kind of different (hypersensitivity to light and sound a few hours before it starts hurting) so it isn’t the same at all in my experience. Any idea as to what this could be? Anyone experience something similar? I am currently 11 weeks pregnant and first noticed this around a month ago.

    When you say your BP is within normal range, is that taken at the times of dizziness? BP can fluctuate and after eating can be a trigger in some people if there's not enough fluid intake
