    Early Saturday morning I woke up, felt fine, went to the washroom and climbed back in to bed - as I rolled on to my right side my head started spinning so bad I could have sworn someone picked up the side of the bed and I was rolling right off of it... I rolled on to my back and felt like I was on a boat, swaying back and forth, before it finally subsided - when I tried to roll on to my right side again, it started again... I've never experienced anything like it, and I was wondering if anyone else has? Thanks.

    Not sure if this is the same thing but I've started feeling quite car sick and I can't rock on a rocking chair without feeling really wierd. I've just put it down to more fluid being inside me?

    Thank you for your response BunMum - that could absolutely be it - I'll probably make an appointment with my OB to talk about it with her, I've been experiencing motion sickness as well (even when I'm driving, which is weird) as well as headaches, so it's probably all tied in together, but thought I'd check here to see if anyone else had experienced anything that extreme (it was quite scary and out of nowhere)

    omg i had that too once!!!! accept it was in the middle of the night when i was woken suddenly (god knows what by!)
    i put it down to shock of waking up quickly.

    hope your okay now..
    i make sure i turn over with my eyes shut just incase my head starts spinning again

    Thanks for your response emalou :) I had my eyes shut when it happened which I think intensified the feeling of being rolled down a hill - I think if I had my eyes open I might have gotten sick - I have been trying to move more slowly though when I shift in bed which seems to have stopped it from happening again as bad - I still feel slightly dizzy though when I do.

    it isn't fun at all eh? :(

    yeah i think i would have been sick to hun!

    best not to see the whole room spinning for long though.

    i think taking it slowly is the key ;)

    see! who needs any specialists ;) hehe x
