  • blood sugar or iron could be low, call your doctor

  • You could just be a bit dehydrated. Are you drinking enough water??

  • It could be anyone of of what the two above post said, well put ladies.^^^^^

    For me it happened to be low iron. They gave me iron pills to take. So i would definetly call the doctor soon. I actually did faint a couple of times. In the meantime, If you feel like your really going to faint, sit down and have someone get you a glass of cold water, drink it slow.

  • It happened to me, especially if I got up fast or something like that. The doc told me to drink LOTS of water and lay on my left side. Make sure you are eating enough too, it could be your blood sugar.

  • check your iron. My was 36 during my first trimester. My OB didn't do nothing about it. It should be at 39. I developed pneumonia and lost all my fluid and had him at 36 weeks.
