    iv been told that im just entering the 2nd trimester! i have no idea what to expect!

    iv noticed in the past couple of days that iv been getting very light headed and burn up.

    Hi Becky

    I think feeling faint occasionally can be normal for a pregnancy - I get a bit light headed sometimes if I get out of bed too quickly, but I don't think it's normal to actually pass out. Also I thought it related mostly to blood sugar levels, in which case it should subside once you have something to eat.

    If you're getting a temperature as well, or if the light-headedness has continued then I think I'd make an appointment to see the doctor to be on the safe side.

    Good luck
