  • The dizziness is normal. When you lay down or sit down, especially, some of the blood gets cut off, and when you get up, the blood all rushes back and hasn't been oxygenated yet, so you get the dizziness when that blood goes to your head without all the needed oxygen. Just make sure to sit up or stand up very slowly and you'll see that the amount of time you're dizzy will be greatly lessened.

  • blurry vision can be a typical pregnancy symptom. Dizzy - normal, fatigue - normal. You're just pregnant! For some people (myself included) pregnancy is not a joyous, easy time. Have you been checked for gestational diabetes? I'm sorry you're having a difficult time - but just think, only 14 (or so) more weeks!

  • I am sorry you are having a rough time. Sounds all normal though. My 3rd pregnancy was rough too. I started feeling the aches and all of that in my 4th month, I was miserable. It will all be worth it in the end.
