15 weeks pregnant. Been having bouts of pressure feeling in my head, hearing loss for around 5 mins and slightly unsteady on feet when standing up.

Anyone else?

You need to call your midwife in the morning and ring 111 now. 111 can talk to you and see if you need immediate assessment.

@Northernsoullover thank you for replying, everything I’ve read is saying it’s vertigo or something not serious? Would u think it was serious enough to ring 111? It’s not happening now but was earlier today while In work

I’d agree with PP. ring 111 or if you’re far enough along in the pregnancy then ring the midwife unit

It might simply be vertigo but it’s never worth the risk in pregnancy

Sorry just re read that you’re 15 weeks. Ring 111

On thank you for the reply. I’ve the children in bed and no means of care tonight If they tell me to go to hosp so going to monitor myself over night and ring first thing in the morning . It hasn’t happened in last few hours was mostly in work and I’ve been in bed since but will of course ring tonight if I feel off or it happens again xx

@Yramrevilo I was thinking that . Although my blood pressure has been running on the higher end this pregnancy and I’m on aspirin. But yea will definitely get checked out first thing. I just wanted to make sure this wasn’t a common thing that’s comes with pregnancy x

Did you go to a and e @2020wish? Sounds like a really concerning symptom

2020wish Thu 08-Oct-20 17:15:15

I went to my GP instead . I honestly couldn’t face 10 hours waiting in a&e with sickness and vomiting in their toilets again.. it’s awful. But yes my blood pressure is high and they are sending bloods off and rechecking my b/p daily atm
