Hi, anyone else feel light-headed during the later stages of pregnancy? Im 34 weeks on sat, but this morning Ive been feeling a bit light-headed. When I first got up I felt quite unsteady, but went back to bed for a bit (it was 5AM). anyway Ive just had something to eat (a banana and a cereal bar - not that you needed to know that) and some juice, but I still dont feel right. I dont feel feint as such just a bit woozy, a bit like Im on a boat. Im sitting on my bum now for a couple of hours, but should I be worried?

As you say it's probably more common to feel faint / weak because of low blood sugar levels, rather than just woozy ... perhaps call NHS Direct? Were you sleeping on your back - that could have been it?

Call your MW just to make sure.

I'm 30wks this wkend & I've felt light headed / dizzy throughout this pregnancy (my 3rd). My bloody pressure is on the low side (90/50) so i'm guessing that is what is causing it this time. I did have the odd dizzy spell during my last 2 pregs too, but they were much more infrequent - best solution is just to rest & drink plenty of fluid. Its Soooooo stinky hot & muggy at the mo, my dizziness has defo got worse these last few days. Try & drink masses whilst sitting on your bum (and don't consider driving if you can help it -I've had a few dizzy moments in the car recently & had to pull over, scary!).
