although i have been breathing better the last few days since baby has dropped, i am experiencing dizziness & light-headedness. it started about an hour ago & has yet to go away. it is a little better when i lay down, but not by much. my BP has been fine for a couple months now (they said i had hypertension mid-pregnancy because of high BP but since then it has become normal again - it is currently 117/80) & my blood sugar seems to be completely normal (though it has been...even though they said i have GD, i don't have spiked blood sugar elevations ever except during that glucose test for some reason). so that leaves me wondering why i would be experiencing both of these symptoms. any suggestions or advice? if it makes a difference, i am 35weeks 3days.

Both answers are very good. I just saw my doctor today and we talked about this very thing. I have had it with all of my pregnancies and he said to drink lots of water especially right when I get up in the am. And don't stand up quickly. Hang in there you are almost done.
