  • Could be...before I found out I was pregnant I was feeling dizzy a lot. Could be from the increase in progesterone after ovulation. Progesterone can make you feel dizzy.

    Or, it could be something else. I'd just go get a cheap HPT (dollar tree!) or a couple and test to be sure and rule out that possiblity.

  • yes its one of the most tell tale signs.

    "Fainting or Dizzy spells: Blood pressure may drop on account of the growing fetus compressing the major arteries. HCG levels move from 0 - 250, 000 in a short span of time. This is accompanied by increased amounts of progesterone in the body, which accounts for tiredness and sluggishness."
