  • Did you eat with it? With my pills I had to eat first. I would also tell my Dr. they may have to put you on a different pill.

  • I would tell him, but being dizzy during preg. is very normal and can happen the whole time your preg.and yes i would ask about taking something diffrent.

  • I would tell your dr about it. You could possibly be anemic, it's fairly common during preg and usually easily corrected with an iron supplement.

  • Make sure you are drinking enough water. Dehydration can make you dizzy.
