    Here I was telling every one that I had no symptoms and this weekend I've been hit really badly by dizziness.

    It's getting worse, to the point where even sipping from a bottle makes me feel woozy. It hits me really bad though when I stand up, my eyesight and hearing goes all funny and I feel light headed.

    I'd really like to stop this if I can. On saturday I was in the supermarket and really thought I was going to faint. I was pretty scared.

    I think my diets ok, and I'm drinking lots of water. What causes this?

    Does anyone else suffer or know of anything that helps.

    :?

    Hiya,

    I had this about week 14, it's due to an increase in blood pumping around your body, if it gets really bad though it might be worth visiting your Dr and getting your BP checked

    You also need to keep your sugar levels up - might be worth checking with doc to make sure you havent developed diabetes (quite uncommon). I try to keep some energy sweets or buiscuits to hand when dizzyness strikes

    Me too, it's due to lowered blood pressure my midwife told me.
