  • go to another doctor and let them check you out. you may need a full blood work up. get to the bottom of this problem soon. get a second opinion and fast.

  • I agree with the previous comment, but in addition to Iron supplements take B 12 and Folic acid as both help your body to produce more blood. This sounds like you're blood levels are low. When you're pregnant you should more than triple your blood volume, but if you don't do it quickly enough, your body will put blood to your baby and to your placenta leaving you feeling faint with low BP. Do get a second opinion before you keep freaking out. This may sound silly but trust your feelings, especially when you're pregnant.
