just been sitting having a hot chocolate and toasted sandwich and have come over incredibly dizzy.

I know at my last antenatal check-up my blood pressure was quite low - and has been dropping gradually since my booking-in - and over the last week I've been feeling unexplainably tired when I shouldn't be (ok I expect to be after working a night shift and staying up for the rest of the day - but not when I've have had 2 nights off with 8-10hr sleep each night).

I'm not going to have to live feeling like this for the next 15 I?

I've answered you !!

Go back to the docs if you're worried. Its horrible when that happens.

get your iron levels checked as well
Can I recommend spatone iron supplement btw, it's non constipating and available from health shops and bigger chemists
Could be low blood pressure, low iron/pregnancy anaemia or low blood sugar.
Are you eating regularly and well?

I'm seeing the MW later this afternoon - if I managed to walk up there without fainting .

Piffle - I'm going to ask about my iron levels.

I'm definitley eating regularly.....not sure it could be low blood sugar - the amount of biscuits, chocolates (ie Twix, Kitkat etc) and mugs of hot chocolate I'm going through in addition to my 3 proper meals a day.

Fanny my dear - could it be that your blood sugar is TOO HIGH?? Your woozy spells seem to come on when you eat or drink sugary stuff; I have gestational diabetes, and this is exactly how I feel when I don't keep my sugar levels down properly.

Are you 34 weeks plus yet? GD comes on about then, unless there is a predisposition, in which case it can come on earlier.

Oops - meant 24 weeks - and i see from your OP that you are 25 ...

I second the iron check, I felt awful for ages earlier on and it turned out all I needed was a good dose of ferrous sulphate.

Could be sugar high. I had this the other night when laid in bed. I felt like the I was spinning (not the room) at about 10:00pm and I am only 7 weeks . Don't think mine was a high.
