Feeling Faint??

I'm 6w today and luckily haven't had what I've thought of as typical morning sickness - the nausea, vomiting, etc. but over the last couple days I've started to have the feeling I was going to pass out....mainly when I get up in the morning to go to the bathroom. I get really hot and a little lightheaded and race back to bed to lay down. This morning, I paused to look in the mirror and thought I was looking at a ghost - I was so pale!!! Anyone else experiencing this? Know any tips?

    I'm not a dr or anything but suffer from anemia especially when pregnant. I world say check your iron levels dr can prescribe a safe iron supplement for you to take in addition to prenatals. That was my experience also.

    My first appointment isn't for another week. Do you think it is safe to wait until then to talk to the doc??

    Ugh that's annoying mine isn't until next week either! Maybe there's a nurse or PA you can talk to they can advise you on if you should come in ASAP or not

    I haven't experienced any faintness during this pregnancy so far, but since I was a teen ive been fainting, just something I can't control, been to many doctors about it, turns out I have low blood pressure. I was told to drink lots a Gatorade or any drinks with electrolytes like vitamin water, and some salty foods can help with it as well.

    I have the same thing if I am in a store or on my feet for longer than 20 minutes at a time, all of my blood work came back perfect so it may just be normal for you in pregnancy as it is for me. Maybe ask your Dr just to double check.
