1 Bump

30 weeks and having a hard time standing for long periods of time....

I just started noticing this the other day. I have been sick the last few days and am only feeling better now, so maybe it is just because i'm weak still. I'm not dehydrated, I drink plenty of water. It is weird. If I'm at work or at home and try to stand, I can only do it for about 5 mins and then I feel like I really need to sit down. I feel pressure in my body and sort of dizzy. Anyone have this same thing and how long does it last? I can't imagine having this for the next couple of months! Also, it feels like my belly is pulling down so hard that it makes me want to sit.

  • I had this problem myself. I worked 40+ hours a week , 8+ hours a day, on my feet THE WHOLE TIME. The best thing is to put one foot up on a low stool, like the height of a shoe box. Also, when at home, you can open a cabinet door and rest your foot inside on the ledge. When I got really dizzy, it was because my blood pressure dropped. Stay hydrated, too. And, if all else fails, have your doctor write a note and have your work put you on light duty. Best Wishes and Good Luck!!
