  • They took your blood pressure though right? and it was normal?

    If it was normal you should call your OB and let them know.

  • sounds like you need more iron but you can get that from green leafy vegies and also a liquid suppliment called Floradix. It should not effect your gall bladder.

  • its from the anemia. i've had anemia since my 7th month and the doctor i went to was a moron n didnt tell me after 2 months of tests. i'm 39 weeks now and just started iron tablets, with a better doctor and that gives u the light headed feeling. u really gotta do something about it though, because it could be dangerous to give birth especially vaginally while ur blood count is low. u lose alot of blood anyways during delivery. so take care, n look up high iron foods, EGGS!

  • Maybe you are a little dehydrated. I would try drinking some water.
