Default New Symptom

Just when I thought my symptoms were starting to let up a bit, I get a new one! And it was NOT fun! The night before last I got heartburn. It was mild, but it was the first time I've ever had it and I hope that it does not return! Other than that it's been a bit of indigestion and a little bit of ligering nausea.

Oh, and twice now I was getting lunch ready and I got really warm, felt very lightheaded/dizzy, and had a nasty wave of nausea. I had it a coulple times with other pregnancies, but this is just crazy! In the past it was just a passing, quick thing. THis lasts a few minutes or more and I'm just glad that I didn't have anything on the stove this time because when it happens I HAVE to sit down or it;s like a blackout. Any ideas what I can do? I'll talk to my Dr about it at my next appointment but dh is worried and wants me to go in if it happens again.

I have gotten that dizzy/nausous/have to sit down a few times when not pregnant and I think it was from being dehydrated. I hope for you it is something simple like that!

I get the whole dizziness thing a lot because my BP is so low. I just make sure that I keep hydrated and that I sit/stand up slowly.

I never had the dizziness but I do understand the heartburn. I only get heartburn when I'm pregnant....5wks or 40wks...its there.
I would talk to the doctor though if the dizziness happens again or more often.

Dizziness is a very normal part of pregnancy... you are probably anemic on top of that.
