Its driving me mad. Im still working and the commute into work is getting harder ands harder. I am sitting at my desk feleing pretty rotten right now sad

I feel dizzy all the time. It gets worse when I stand up, as my vision goes a little and I just feel like I have to lie down.

Its making life very difficult as I have now started to feel anxious and panicky with it as well. I spoke to my MW on the phone but they said just make a GP appt to get your blood pressure checked. So I have one booked for tommorrow.

Anyone else had this ?

I think you need to get your BP checked asap - can you drop into your surgery and demand to be seen? Or is there a pharmacy near you? They can do BP checks.

Don't want to panic you further but dizziness and blurred vision shouldn't be ignored.

Sounds like low blood pressure, anaemia, or a combination of both.

I had low bp with ds2 - was a nightmare and made pregnancy extremely difficult. I wanted to sleep all the time and found doing anything physical very hard. On a medical note, no one was bothered which is good for the baby but unfortunate for the mother! Good news was it returned to normal after giving birth. Good luck

When i went for a GP appointment at about 33 wks my BP was a lot lower than what it had been previously, although i hadn't had any severe dizzy spells and my GP said that it was quite normal at that stange of pregnancy and should go back to normal in the next couple of weeks, which it did.
Like others have said, would definitely get it checked out though if it's affecting you thi much.

Good luck and hope everything is ok smile

Inbetweener how'd it go at the gp's? Is exciting on the AN thread... Pesha thought she might be in labour and has now gone all quiet. We're all in a state of expectancy wink

Sorry. I couldn't resist the pun. blush
