    What should i do? Should I call the on call dr and see what they think. It's been happening since Thursday. I feel better when i am sitting or laying down. I'm 38 weeks today. What would you do? TIA!

    Update I called and talked to the on-call who said it might be from having a low glucose level and try eating things with protein. SO thats exactly what I did. Sure enough I didn't have any more Dizziness after that.

    Do speak to your midwife, its always best to get a professional opinion. I have been having this aswell sporadically. Always best to check it out, could be low blood pressure, or a urine infection.

    Please do get it checked out and don't be silly like me. I didn't bother to and at one point passed out (family wasn't home at the time either).

    Hope things get better and take good care of yourself hun. :hugs:
