I have been getting quite severe headspins in the morning

Hi, Im currently 29 weeks pregnant and have been getting quite severe headspins occasionally when I wake up in the morning. It only seems to effect me if I am lying down and roll from one side to the other, when I stand up it seems to lessen in intensity or dissapear all together. I also have a two year old son, with whom I suffered nothing like this at all. Any ideas of what may be causing this, or is it a common complaint? thanks

Answer: Hi,
You need to check your iron levels as this can sometimes cause dizziness. You need to also ensure that you drink enough water during the day. Otherwise it just may be part of this pregnancy.
Best wishes,
Alex
