Q&A: Dizziness During PregnancyAnne Sommers, Licensed Midwife
Q I'm 30 weeks pregnant as of today and recently I've been too warm, but today that seems worse AND I've had several dizzy spells. I don't think I'm dehydrated and I've heard dizziness is common - but is it a 3rd trimester symptom as well as a 1st, what causes it, and what should I do to help relieve it? Thanks!
A Dizziness can happen in any trimester. It can be caused by high or low blood pressure or anemia. Your health practitioner can rule out these conditions. It is also a sign of adrenal insufficiency. You can nutritionally supplement your diet to improve your health in that area. Among other nutrients, vitamin Bs and C are helpful in aiding compromised adrenals and anemia. Pregnant women naturally are very warm. Their body is working hard in order to grow a baby. That is normal.
