Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else suffers from this intense giddiness - at times feels like my head is spinning (like something from The Exorcist!)
Am seeing midwife for 36 week scan on Weds so I'll speak to her about it - just wondered if it was a 'normal'thing to suffer with? My BP is fine - 116-70 at last check. DP thinks I'm dizzy all the time (!!) but it's really starting to annoy me now. It's not a constant thing, but I have 4 or 5 attacks a day...

Hi louba,

I got dizzy during late pregancy but that was due to high blood pressure, if your is fine your midwife with check your iron levels as that could make you dizzy, but I will say pregnancy can turn your brain to mash did mine and it got any better!!!! Seriously though talk to your midwife about it might not be anything but best get yourself checked over.

Best of luck with the birth

thanks ladies - that does help - I'll check all those points when I see MW on Weds. Thinking about it, with the throwing up and the hideous temper, heartburn and stretchmarks - I AM something from the Exorcist!!
