  • I am 36 weeks, I had the same feeling yesterday, i felt dizzy and schort breath, the best thing is have a coffee (i know it's not the best choice but one coffee a day doesnt harm) so have a black regular coffee, eat something like saltines or anything else you like, and lie down on your left shoulder, and i hope that helps. it did help me yesterday as i was getting ready to go out with my husband for Valentine's dinner.
    good luck

  • YOUR BLOOD VOLUMN HAS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED IN YOUR BODY. SO AT TIMES THE PRESSURE DOESNT KEEP UP WITH THE RETURN UP TO THE HEART. CAUSING A LIGHTHEADED FEELING, BUT YOU COULD ALSO SIMPLY NOT BE DRINKING ENOUGH WATER.
