dizzy, lightheaded, and blurred vision...

I am about 11 1/2 weeks pregnant. Last night around 10pm when I was sitting down watching tv, my vision got really blurry and I got very dizzy and lightheaded. It went away after about 20 mins it so but then I had a killer headache. Well now it is 2 in the afternoon and for about the last few hours I have still been dizzy and lightheaded. I'm not really sure what to do or if I should do anything but wait it out or what. Anyone else have this? What'd you do? What caused it? Anything would help. Thanks.

  • I would get it checked out by your doctor just to make sure it's not anything serious.

  • I had something like that happen before, and I figured out It was just from being dehydrated.

  • Could be anything listed above or being dehydrated esp if it's hot where you live I hope you gave your OB's office a call that is what they are there for. G/L.

  • The same thing happened to me and my doctor said that when you are pregnant your blood pressure will run alittle low because you are basically shareing it with the baby. If it persits for more then 3 days or just cant seem to get used to it i would call the doctor.

  • This has been happening to me a lot to...
    I was anemic pre-pregnancy, so it could be that. But I have a feeling it has to do with blood pressure this time...
    I'm getting it checked out at my next appointment.

    I recommend you get it checked out as well.
