  • I got dizzy pretty often around 5-7 weeks. It's a normal symptom. However, if it continues/gets worse, you should let your ob know, because it could be a sign of something more severe.

  • I'm not to sure but do you have a community nurse you could call. Dizzyness is usually associated with low blood pressure from my understanding but I need to add I am not a medical professional.

  • Yes it is pretty common.And some people only have one symptom at the early stages of pregnancy.
    Of course,if it concerns you talk to your doctor. Otherwise,I'm sure you'll be fine just be careful especially when you start to stand up.

  • I would have times when I was pregnant that I'd stand up and get so dizzy everything would go white and I'd sit back down in a hurry. The first time I didn't think to sit back down, I ended up falling down against the wall in my hallway and hitting my head...learned to stand up very slowly and stay by my seat for a few seconds to make sure the wasn't going to white-out again.

  • I got dizzy during my daughter. Every time I moved my head the room would spin. I found out it was because I was anemic. Dr. put me on iron pills and it went away.
