20 weeks and feeling faint!

I'm 20 weeks and have had a couple of spells of feeling really faint this morning. The midwife is fully booked today (although they have a blood pressure machine in the waiting room and they've told me to come in and use that). I have been eating chocolate and trying to keep still but am at work (and need to get home somehow too so resting isn't an option yet). Anyone else had this?

I had attacks of feeling faint and a bit nauseous nw and again with my first preg. That as due to low blood pressure. Not bad enough to do anything about tho. I just carried a little bottle of cold water with me which seemed to help when I came over queer!

Thanks Gem. I think I was hot AND hungry which didn't help - I ate something, put my feet up and felt fine a little while later. Good excuse to skive off a bit early!

I had low blood pressure in my pregnancies and felt faint a lot of the time. I just had to make sure I kept my fluids up - I don't think there is a lot anyone can do.

Of course lying down does help a lot !!!!!
