please help-fainting..

i am 38 weeks pregnant and for a bout a week or so i have been having some infrequent light headedness. sometimes i feel like i am about to faint. i get really dizzy-even when i am sitting down-but it usually happens when i am walking or standing for a while. i drink lots of water and stay hydrated and try to eat something when i feel this way. is this normal?

  • blood pressure issues. go to your doctor!

    fainting is not good while pregnant, you could fall and seriously hurt or kill your baby without meaning to.

  • With my first I always was like this also and I fainted at work and hit my head so they took me to the hospital and found that I had a heart murmmer. But they also said that the lighted headed ness could be the addded blood you retain when pregnant. So it could be that I would talk to your doctor. I also had to have a c-section because of the heart murmmer so its better to safe. Hope ya feel better your almost there.
