Hi smile

I’m currently 10 weeks pregnant and feeling very breathless, even walking up the stairs in the house is a struggle. I am not over weight, don’t smoke and have no health conditions. On top of this I’m feeling very dizzy and having headaches which yesterday was accompanied with blurry eyesight.

With my 1st pregnancy I only had terrible sickness so I guess I’m just looking to see if any one else has experienced this is early pregnancy and if there is anything that helps?

Thank you grin

It's likely to be low blood pressure. I struggled with this during my two pregnancies and fainted each time. It was also caused by low iron which again is common during pregnancy. Go and see your gp.

Due to breathlessness, I would make an urgent GP appointment, just in case.

I got very dizzy around this stage of pregnancy. Not entirely sure why but it was nothing to worry about. I did bleed a lot in first trimester (baby was fine) so maybe low iron.

I would say to doctor, they can do some basic checks like iron, diabetes, and blood pressure. Think it can just be hormonal changes and mine passed, just take it easy whilst you have it.

Definitely get checked out by a doctor, to be on the safe side.

Anything as worrying as this needs investigation. I hope you took advice from a health care professional and are being looked after 💐
