  • Call your ob, these problems need to be addressed. Dry heated air in the winter can cause headaches and nosebleeds, but it sounds as if you have more than that going on, so get checked out as soon as possible. The dizziness has me concerned. Call your ob or go to an urgent care clinic. If nothing else, you'll have peace of mind.

  • It could be Pre- Eclampsia(sorry if it's spelled wrong) I use to get nose bleeds when my bloodpressure was really high. Also headaches are associated with pre-E. If you notice your hands are swollen I would suggest you go to the nearest ER or contact your OB at once.

  • I've addressed the problems with my Ob. He doesnt say much about it. Just that I've been tested for anemia/etc and dont have it. I do notice in my hands they'll turn a red color and all the veins in my fingers and such with become really visible.

  • Get a new ob... If he dismisses your concerns without first explaining the possible causes and offering solutions you need to ask him point blank. I want an answer to this problem. If one is not offered you need to start looking for other OBs
    Are you eating 3 meals with snacks in between, are you staying hydrated. Are you standing up slowly.
