    Any one else getting this? It just come out of no where even when I'm sitting down so it's not because I'm standing up I fast. It feels like I could fall over! It's really horrible. Should I be worried?

    I'd get your bp checked with mw and alsoake sure you are eating enough. I get it if I stand up too quickly or if I look upwards too long or if I haven't eaten enough so for me I think it's likely to be low bp x

    I get dizziness occasionally whilst sitting, mines usually linked to a fast heart rate, but when it's not I've been advised to just shift to my side, or lie down as it could be baby in a bad position lying on veins and what not (usually happens when your laying on your back, but can be if its just being awkward!).

    Mention it to your midwife just to be on the safe side though x

    She checked my BP and it was low so sent off a blood test and iron was slightly below average so im on iton tablets now.

    Defo worth a check with MW or GP xx
