  • I would just tell the dr you can not wait that long and tell them what is going on. NO decent OB would make you wait with any sort of problem like that. You aren't getting enough oxygen and that can be very bad. Just go in or find a doctor who will see you.

  • You need to go to the doctor, preferably the ER, ASAP. Dizziness with passing out is a sign of poor circulation and not addressing it can have life threatening consequences for you and your baby.

  • EAT!!  It sounds as if you have low blood sugar which is very common during pregnancy.  When I was pregnant with my first I was standing at the counter in a bank and got all dizzy and hot and then WHAM! I passed out cold.  They called the ambulance and took me to the ER and found out it was low blood sugar.  Orange juice, apple juice, that's the quickest way to get sugar into your blood, but you have to eat.  Eat fruit, small amounts of anything all throughout the day.  When you get to your doctor appointment make sure to tell them about it.  They will probably run a quick blood test on you to determine if your sugar levels are too low.

  • Do you have a tendancy toard high blodd pressure? That will cause some bad dizzy spells, especialy if it gets really high.
    Also, as pp said..try eating. If your not eating enough, that could cause it too. If youre at a point where its hard to hold anything down, try eating small, healthy meals and snacks through out the day. Something high in carbs may be easier to hold down if you have a lot of morning sickness going on.
