    I had that a few weeks back. The midwife suggested eating some of those yoghurts with all the live stuff in them, like Activia.

    I used to get dizzy from time to time.
    According to the American Pregnancy Association:

    Try not to stand for long periods of time-- and don't swtich positions really quickly. Like don't stand up too quickly. & make sure you are eating well. My doctor had told me that I needed to make sure I ate more iron because I was becoming slightly anemic. If you are still having dizziness when you go to your next doctor appointment, you should definitely mention it to them, just so they know what's going on.
    Good Luck :flow:

    I felt dizzy as well, and thought it might be related to lack of vitamins, as your baby is taking everything from you. I stated taking pregnantcare vitamins, and feel much better now.

    I had this and tried everything, but nothing seemed to really help. I mentioned it to my midwife and she did some blood tests just to check things over, and turned out my iron levels were really low. I'm now on iron pills until bubba arrives :thumbup: and feeling much better.

    Hope this helps :flower:

    Be careful. I was at the mall the other day and a pregnant lady fall as she said she was dizzy. And she told the ER nurse it has been like that for weeks and nothing seems to help her she always gets dizzy. The best thing is to avoid being alone outside, drink a lot and rest a lot...

    I think you should tell your DR

    In the first instance i'd say lay down till it passes, this helps me though it can be a couple of hours i feel light headed for. I suffer and for me its caused by a combination of low blood pressure, low blood sugar, low iron.. so eating something sugary, resting up should give you a pick up and im also now taking iron supplements and not getting it anymore x
