What do these symptoms mean?

Horrible headache, dizzy when I stand up, sick to my stomach, and heart is racing. I am 15 weeks pregnant.

  • That sounds like your sugar may be low... I would call the doc right away and consider eating a chocolate bar in the mean time to see if it makes you feel any better. If it doesn't make you feel any better your doc should know what to do.

  • It can be the change in your hormones. Call your doctor for advice to make sure it is nothing serious. But, a lot of the symptoms you listed is caused from the hormone imbalance. Your body changes so rapidly during a pregnancy that it cannot keep up with itself. It could also be some dehydration or not eating enough. Hope you get it taken care of!

  • Call your doctor and describe exactly what is happening and how often.

  • Oh, also, have your thyroid levels checked. Ask for a thyroid panel. A lot of women will have thyroid deficiencies during pregnancies, which can leave you feeling this way.
