i have experienced dizzy spells and feeling like im going to faint aswell, its all part of pregnancy. Just take it easy, drink plenty of water and dont rush to get up or do things, take it slowly. If you are worried about it ask your doc what he/she thinks.

I have also had dizzy spells throughout my whole pregnancy - and some days i feel like im going to be sick too, but i never actually am. I feel like i'm going to faint alot. And I went on maternity leave from my job at 10weeks as i also had low blood pressure which made dizziness even worse and more frequent! You said you felt like you couldnt feel your face - i experienced a few times early in my pregnancy, a tingling feeling in my face, and then i couldnt really feel my face at all. I spoke to my doctor about it and she said pregnancy can do funny things to you and it wasnt anything to worry about. And im assured the dizziness is normal. You'll probably be told this too. Just really make sure you get atleast 2 litres of water a day and take it easy. If you feel like you're having an off day, dont do anything! Put your feet up and rest! The washing, etc can wait. Anyway i hope i've helped and your feeling better soon..
its got alot to do with hormones, but it could be you blood pressure too. if its been continuous i really suggest you go see your dr and makes sure they check you out properly and not just palm you off as "just being pregnant".
i hope all is good

Then with my second I was walking to town and had to sit down on the footpath and drink my daughters water out of her sippy cup as I felt dizzy and sick like I was going to faint (I brought us both more water when we got to town)
I found that if I walked anywhere I would drink at leat 1 sometimes 2 800ml bottles of water while I was walking and I wouldnt feel faint.
