I don't know why but I get so dizzy. I'm about 14 weeks and I eat just fine and healthy. I've been over the morning sickness for awhile now so I am eating and keeping it down. So I really don't think it's from lack of food. I could be sitting in the middle of the bed just fine and the next second it feels like I'm just gonna fall off the edge I get so dizzy. Plus I'm getting really bad headaches too. anyone else feel like this?

I've had diziness like that throughout my whole pregnancy! It definitly sucks. If I stood up too long I would even start to black out! It is probably normal..HOWEVER, talk to your doc about it anyways..because it could be a sign of pre-eclampsia. I had eclampsia (not pre) when I was pregnant at 17..and had a seizure, and was forced by doctors to abort the baby. Not trying to scare you! It is a rare condition and you are probably just experiencing normal pregnancy conditions..but just ask your doc to be sure.

sounds like either your blood pressure is too low or a bit high, have it checked it will be fine xxxx

Found this on a website: Dizziness or feeling faint is a normal symptom during pregnancy. It is more common in the first trimester, but it may also be prevalent throughout your pregnancy.The main cause of dizziness in pregnancy is due to the rising hormones that cause your blood vessels to relax and widen. This helps increase the blood flow to your baby, but it slows the return of the blood in the veins to you. This causes your blood pressure to be lower than usual which can reduce the blood flow to your brain temporarily causing dizziness.Dizziness is also caused by low blood sugar levels which may occur as your body adapts to changes in your metabolism. Women who are anemic or who have varicose veins may be more susceptible to dizziness than others.Dizziness may be caused in your second trimester because your growing uterus may be putting pressure on blood vessels. Dizziness may occur later in your pregnancy when you lie on your back allowing the weight of the baby to press on your vena cava (a large vein that carries blood from your lower body to your heart.)
