I have 4 weeks left to go. For the last few days I haven't been able to stay on my feet for any longer than 10/15 mins at a time without feeling suddenly light-headed and having to sit down. It can take me up to half an hour to feel "normal" again. Not been out the house in days because of this. Anyone else experiencing anything similar? Never had this with my first pregnancy. Also been feeling out of breath even just from having a 5 minute conversation! Really hope this doesn't last
Yep, I've got it at 28 weeks. Breathless for no reason and lightheaded. And I found out yesterday I'm anaemic so perhaps this is why you are as well? Have you had a blood test recently? Are you taking iron?
I had a couple of days of bad dizziness when I even felt dizzy sitting down. The midwife said it could have been a shift in my blood pressure. It lasted 2 or 3 days then seemed to clear up, it was horrible while it lasted though.
Well my midwife has been constantly checking my blood for iron because I'm very pale but the tests always come back ok! I've also got lower than normal blood pressure but this has always been the case with me, pregnant or not. I've felt like this earlier in my pregnancy I'm just more worried this time because its had me bedbound nearly a week. So fed up I'm really ready to have this baby now!
Hiya I'm 34wks preg with my 3rd & I get this alot - my blood pressure reading is always around 90/60 which I'm told is fairly low. I also have 2 very active kids to chase around after all day, which doesnt help! I had a growth scan the other day & went all dizzy & felt sick & faint during that - they laid me too flat on my back & that set it off, so even lying down doesnt always help me! I frequently get out of breath just doing the supermarket shop and have to find somewhere to sit down in the aisles....cue my kids & other shoppers looking at me strangely! Think its just one of those pregnancy things unfortunately, just try to rest as much as poss (easier said than done!). I have a c-section booked for 5wks time & am now counting the weeks / days! Good luck - not long now! x
