    yeah take it easy :hug: Ive been feeling slightly dizzier lately, but ive just put it down to my low BP. I'll be seeing the MW in a few days anyway. Could you maybe be anemic? (have i spelled that right? lol) I got tested for amemia in my last pregnancy when i told my GP i was dizzy. My iron levels were fine, but he signed me off work anyway which was good :D

    I get that quite a lot, I get some days where I get terrible headaches and feel like I am in a haze. It normally has to do with blood pressure and the best remedy is to take it easy and get some sleep. I know the other reasons for feeling like this can be blood sugar levels or anemia as my Doc checked me for this when I was getting terrible headaches/dizzy spells. I hope you feel better soon, take it easy :sleep:

    DEf get your midwife to check your iron levels and your blood pressure. My midwife asked me if i was feeling dizzy and then said she wasn't surprised as my bp was so low!
