I am 38 weeks and feeling light headed and dizzy with shortness of breath for the first few hours every morning?

I am somewhat anemic and taking a Iron Sup. along with my PNV. Does anyone know what this could be from? Should I take more Iron? already taking 3 suppliments of Iron a day.

  • What position are you sleeping in? Possibly your baby is squishing you heart and lungs when you sleep, causing you to lessen your bloodflow and apparently your breathing. If you're not already, try getting a whole bunch of pillows and sleep in a reclining, almost sitting up, position. See if it helps any. But I would still bring it up to your DR, just in case. Could be many other things.
