  • I hope the best for your health.

    Being that tomorrow is a holiday, will you still be able to see your doctor? Or will your visit be next week Monday? If next week, call a local hospital (today) to speak to a nurse.

    I would personally say to sit up during the day. If you lay down and then suddenly rise, your blood pressure will jump. Rise slowly to standing, then walk slowly. If standing, keep standing. But please don't up-and-down, from sitting to standing.

  • Its very normal for the little one to get u light headed,
    and i had the same problem, with the heart beat, they said i was so small *torso* that the baby was pushing up my heart making it work faster i have no idea ,

    but i would consider, going to the ER, if you beleive its your blood pressure.
