  • Call your doc and see if you can get a blood pressure check.

  • Uh, do you eat? History of Gestational Diabetes? Restrictive clothing? Either way call a doctor for real. What if you fell onto one of your other children or incapacitated yourself enough that they had to live without you for an extended period of time?

  • Go to the doctor and get you blood pressure and blood sugar checked

  • You need to call your Dr and talk to them about it. It could be your blood pressure or your sugar levels are off.

  • Blood sugar, blood pressure, or worse - call your doctor NOW and get in ASAP.

  • I was like this too at times. The dr told me that my iron was low. You can take iron tablets. But I would definitely check with your dr first because it could be more serious.

  • Sounds like you have a vitimin deficiency. I would say you're extremely Anemic. You need to go see your OB right away though. Whatever is causing these dizzy spells needs to be checked out. That is a sign of some serious health issues as well as some pretty basic stuff. You don't want to take a chance.
