HI Lisa, whens are you due and when is your next check up?
Can I suggest if your next check up is not soon you phone your doctor (doctor nurses) or midwife and tell them what happend, they may just want to check your blood pressure or refer you for blood tests then you can be sure everything is A OK.
I will be 28 weeks on Monday and at at my last check up (2 weeks ago) my midwife advised my bloodpressure was low ( I have always had normal blood pressure). I havent had any fainting spells but often see "stars" even when just walking normally. She said to take it easy as if my bloodpressure got any lower I would be end up hospital on IV to bring your blood pressure back to normal, as when your blood pressure gets too low it can slow the flow of blood to the placenta. She also said to ring her if I have a fainting spell and sent me to get my 28-30 weeks blood test early.
When I found out I have low blood pressure I looked on the net for info but all I found was related to high blood pressure. 1 site I found said to keep fluids up and increase salt intake.
My sister in law ended up in hospital for 2 weeks with her first pregnancy with low blood pressure as she had not told her doctor she was having faiting spells and her blood pressure got too low. Baby ended up being born 6 weeks early and he is fine.
Let me know how you get on.
