    I've just been out for a shopping trip, but every ten minutes had to sit down on a bench / chair / jumper display in Gap, because i kept on feeling light headed, like before you faint.

    Anyone else getting spells like this? Normally i'm fine (though felt a bit light headed in the shower too) but today my head is kinda buzzing.

    Had my blood pressure taken last week and all fine. Maybe it's just all part of my body falling apart at the mo :(

    Or it's all the bed rest i've been on. Makes a girl really unfit..

    Yep I had the same as you did and wasnt my blood pressure as it was checked also just hormones again. I couldnt do very much for fear of falling over and my head and ears where buzzing and ringing. I think your getting all the same stuff as I did reading some of your other threads. Its terrible! I think everyones body reacts differently and I would be sensitive to changes. I cant even take a pain killer without getting high so i assume pregnancy will be rough to.

    If it makes you feel better mines layed off. Didnt need to take anything and they just said it was normal. I get the odd spell now but nothing like i did. If you faint though get it looked into more.

    i did yesterday at the swimming pool. I had a swim felt fine, but there are communal showers and it was busy so quite warm and all of a sudden i felt a little sick and dizzy. Which was inconvenient as I was in the middle of a conversation.. anyway.. I felt quite ill but managed to get my stuff out of my locker and into a cubicle before I had to sit down and actually I sat my wet arse on all my dry clothes. Then I felt fine after a while and I walked home. Weird.

    I've been getting this a lot lately. I find I need to walk a LOT slower then I usually do (apparantly I basically run my OH says!) so slowing down lots and making sure to take rests when out walking a lot!
