feeling dizzy for awhil...

I will be 20 weeks tomorrow and for the last 3 hours I have been feeling very dizzy and lightheaded. I've been drinking water and sitting but everytime I go to stand up I feel like I will fall down. Any advice or opinions would be helpful. Thanks.

  • drink more water! drop in blood pressure gives you the dizzy feeling when standing. The water will help raise your blood pressure. Also stand up SLOWLY.
