Hi Lyndsey,

How far gone are you??

I had this when I was about 8-10 weeks. I could be either low blood pressure or low sugar levels which are both common in early pregnancy. All my midwife said was that I should eat little and ofted rather that big meals and to keep a snack on me like chocolate, sweets or buscuits if I get caught out somewhere and I start to feel a bit 'fuzzy'.

Hope that helps. x x

Hi Lyndsey
I do get that and I was advised by my midwife to carry apricots to help sugar levels. As Tanya said eat little often and that may help. I seem to get it worse now that I am nearly 23wks pregnant. Try not to worry
Love T x
