Almost passed out again today. — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Almost passed out again today.

I was at work (I start at 7:30) and started feeling funny while doing microscope work around 9.  I went to break at 9:15 and after going up some stairs, almost passed out in the cafeteria.  I couldn't see, everything was black, and felt like I was going down.  I sat at the table for a while, tried to eat something, but felt nauseous so couldn't...then had my coworkers bring me to the break room. After drinking water, OJ and eating a tiny bit, I still wasn't feeling good so I went to the ER.  I was there all day.  Everything came back normal, except for a slightly low pulse, which is hereditary and I've always had it.  The doc thinks that my low pulse, with blood volume increasing like it does in pregnancy, is what caused it - my body couldn't keep up.  I got an IV.  I was sent home, but I still felt sort of weird.  I am home now, and feel ok, but I am worried because I don't want that to happen again.  It was so scary!  This happened twice before but only during pregnancy, but never this bad.  Has anyone else experienced this before?  I am anemic, but its getting better because I am taking iron now.  So weird.  I'm also scared that they are going to put my on bed rest if these almost fainting episodes keep happening.  ggrr.

  • That sounds really scary! I think what the dr. said makes sense. Maybe your bp drops? I didn't pass out, but I feel extremely exhausted most days. I think it's just the lovely side effects of pregnancy. Hope it doesn't happen again.

  • I'm sorry.  I have noticed that microscope work, especially when I'm on it for long periods, has been more likely to make me faint as well.  I think it's just making me too sea-sick from all the back and forth movement.  I hope it's nothing too concerning and you don't have to go on bed rest!
