    have you checked your blood pressure is normal? low (or extremely high) BP can make you feel dizzy apparently... i haven't had this problem, but know others who have fainted regularly in pregnancy due to low BP.

    i have quite low blood pressure (usually 100/60) so i get dizzy quite a bit! could also be low blood sugar if you have gone a while without eating.
    Best to get midwife to check it out, you may need a blood test to see if your iron levels are low (anemia), which can make you dizzy.
