    I get them sometimes and i think it might be because i have low blood pressure. My midwife said not to worry and said it was most like head rush and eat regularly (mostly because i faint after getting them sometimes.
    hope this helps in any way

    as trinka says thats what i have been told. i get them sometimes too. thing that helps me is to stand up slowly, dont turn your head too fast or bend down to fast. x

    Go to your doctor or midwife and let them know asap bird. . . yes, it CAN be a symptom of low blood pressure but it can also be a sure sign of pre eclampsia.

    Even if its nothing, better safe than sorry. Good Luck xx
    ETA:just noticed you're only 14 weeks, so most likely it is low blood pressure, but id def still mention it next time you see him/her :)

    Im getting white flashing lights too like little stars. My bp and urine was all normal 2 weeks ago so the midwife said it could be to do with low iron levels. These spots are still occuring but now becoming stronger :s I have to see my mw again today so ill see what she says!

    I have low BP and I get sparkly dancers! :lol: If you're further on and get them, I'd get your BP checked to be sure it's low and not high - mine was always low though. :)
