Anyone SUPER Lightheaded

MooBaby - January 4

I am almost 17 weeks and sometimes I feel like I am not getting enough oxygen. I get light headed, especially in the a.m., and sometimes when I am concentrating (maybe breathing shallow?) I have to sit down and try to breathe and relax. It is kind of annoying and a bit scary. I feel like I can't get enough air. Anyone else???

I am almost 16 weeks, and the same thing has been happening to me for the last week or so. I think it's probably related to my circulation, b/c I've also noticed that my feet are falling asleep more often.

Sometimes after I eat I feel like I can't breathe well. I just try to sit and relax until it goes away.

I am 19 weeks and If I move too quickly or even bend down or walk down the stairs I get light headed. This past monday it was super bad! I was getting things ready for the OHIO STATE football game and I had to stop and make the boyfriend do everything. I got lightheaded, dizzy and felt like i blacked out for a brief second.

I would mention it to your Dr. on your next visit. I was getting faint etc and when I mentioned it to my Dr he said my blood pressure was low (somewhat typical in pregnancy) and he had me get a blood test to check my iron levels. Turned out they were low and he has my on an additional supplment. It has helped a bit. I don't think it is an immediate concern, but it's good to mention it at your next visit.

Hi, I am currently 25 weeks prego and have been feeling the same way. I asked the doctor about this on Wednesday and found out it's because I have low blood pressure. The only thing you can do is eat frequently and rest as much as possible.

Im 21 wks. I usually feel lightheaded after Ive eaten something. So what I usually do is trying to stay relax and then breath slowly until I go back to my normal breathing.

Thanks all! Glad I am not alone.... GG, I am on iron supplements already because my iron count is pretty low to begin with. So that probably is compounding the issue for me.
