Has anyone had extremely dizzy episodes during early pregnancy (I am 14 weeks) to the point of falling into walls (my husbands comparison is a wasted person walking)? I see the dr again Friday.

I get that and I'm not pregnant. I have very low blood pressure.

Yep, It's not uncommon. Be sure to talk to your doctor about it, but if you aren't losing consciousness, you probably don't need to be seen before your regular appt.

Can be normal and miserable. I had it for 3 long miserable pregnancies. It was horrible. I hated every day of being pregnant because I was so sick and dizzy. Mine was my bp was low when I stood for any amount of time. Cohnldnt even make dinner.
I would mention it to your on to check iron and make sure its nothing wrong though.

If iron can cause it that would make sense. They actually wanted to give me a blood transfusion but instead put me on daily iron injections.

Low blood pressure, low blood sugar, or low iron. Hard to pinpoint without blood or glucose tests.

Make sure your prenatal vitamin has iron in it, and eat iron rich foods, in addition to vitamin c rich foods (vitamin c helps your body use iron better).

And try eating frequent small snacks throughout the day. A few pieces of fruit, yogurt, even some candy like twizzkers or something.

Normal. I blacked out at the airport in Oakland California at 13 weeks.

It is not my sugar. It was the first thing I checked since I have sugar issues. I have been checking them 4x a day.

Ahh, well that's good to narrow it down! BP or the iron thing then most likely.
