  • Have a big drink of water and something to eat while lying down. It could be a couple of things...dehydration, a poor reaction to the awful heat, low blood sugar, high blood sugar, or blood pressure spikes.

    if you rest and eat a protein/good carb combo, like a low sugar pb on whole grain toast, and have plenty to drink, and it persists, give your doc a call.

  • It can be normal to be dizzy during pregnancy. It could be low iron, you're dehydrated, it could be a number of things. Just call your OB for suggestions.
