Postpartum dizziness?

Since about two or three weeks postpartum (I'm almost at the nine week mark now), I've been dizzy. Did this happen to anyone else? I have yet to ask my doctor, since its nothing thats really interfering with my life - not so bad I feel like I'll drop my baby - it's mostly when I lay down, I feel like I've drank way too much and the world is spinning.

  • Call your doctor, you could be leaking spinal fluid from the injection site.

  • Are you on blood pressure medication? If so, perhaps it's making your pressure go too low. Happened to me, and Doc took me off it.

  • no, not on any meds. i had a problem with dizziness before i even got pregnant, but it only lasted a day or two at a time, never this long before.
