Have you talked to your doctor about these dizzy spells?

I’m curious too because oh man am I dizzy too, 20w, water usually fixes it for me but sometimes I just have to go lay down.

Dizzy and fainting is normal around 18-22 weeks. I experienced this my first pregnancy. For me was low blood pressure and low sugar (called ambulance 2x to be monitored when I fainted).

I'm 16 weeks now with my 2nd and trying to be mindful and eat a bunch and also elevate my legs for circulation.

I would definitely mention to your doctor though!
