    Hi girls



    I know that at this stage of pregnancy it can be normal to feel light headed and faint sometimes. But for about the past week i have had it really bad, i can't walk any distance without feeling like everything around me is moving about and feeling like i am going to faint. First i feel really sick, then the ground feels like it is moving, then i feel like everything is fuzzy to look at and really hot and then my head feels soooo heavy and i have to sit down...and sitting down doesnt take it away, and even then i feel weak for the rest of the day...i hate it i went to town this morning really early to try and avoid the crowds and had only been in boots for 10 mins when it started. Does anyone else have this and is it normal???

    Get yourself to midwife or dr and get your blood pressure checked as soon as poss. I had been having bad headaches and nose bleeds and dr was happy to check mine to put my mind at ease.
    If you have any swelling that's also a tell tale sign.
    Seriously, phone now it's probably just usual pregnancy joys but it's worth checking it out.:hugs:

    I find that when i stand up, my head starts pounding and i feel like i'm going to collapse. If i am standing still too long my legs turn to jelly and feel like i'm going to pass out.

    The last week or so it seems to have got worse and I have constant headaches.

    I'm going to have to go back to docs again. I had my blood pressure checked last week i think and it was 80/50 which she said was very low but nothing they can do about it?!
