Low blood pressure....

Anyone else have to deal with this during pregnancy? Did you get light headed and faint in stores or the shower? How did you make your pregnancy easier aside from keeping hydrated and getting up slowly (which I already do). Just looking for idea's or advice from other moms that have been through it. I was told to drink a glass or coke or OJ when feeling light headed but that doesn't even work half the time.

  • Could it be your iron levels? I naturally have VERY low blood pressure, so I try to get lots of iron in my diet, and it seems to help a lot.

  • Nope, iron level is fine (sugar levels too). Just had them checked a couple weeks ago. I too have naturally lower blood pressure but during my 2nd and 3rd trimester it just gets awful. I can't even make a decent trip to Sams club or the grocery store without leaving to go sit down somewhere multiple times.
