  • It could be a lot of things from low blood sugar to a drug interaction. I would call your DR and talk it over with them.

  • You should probably speak to your dr about it. I experienced this with both of my pregnancies, just couldn't get my balance. I feel down stairs while I was pregnant with both. I fell at work when I was preggers with my first one and my employer felt it was bad, so I went to the ER to get checked but everything was fine. I was told it was just my equilibrium. I could not balance my new, extended belly! However, if you are only 4 months you probably don't have much of a belly. I would def. talk to the dr and let him know. This first thing they checked me for was an inner ear infectio, which I didn't have but it can make you dizzy. Good luck :) Hope you feel better soon.

  • You could be experiancing dizziness ecause your body is now producing more blood than it did pre-pregnancy.

    But you should call your doctor just in case so they can rule out other health factors. I was diagnosed with dehydration.
