    Passing out during pregnancy

    Hello I have a question! I am new to this site and I was hoping someone would be able to help me. I was at the park the other day with my 21 month old and a friend and her children. After walking around for a while I passed out. I had eaten and I was drinking water. It came out of no where. I am 14 weeks pregnant and I am making an appointment with my doctor first thing in the morning. Has anyone else experienced anything like this during pregnancy? I have had a few friends say it happened to them and is no big deal, however this seems like a big deal to me. Any ideas?! Thank you!

    This happened to me in my first pregnancy when I was in the 2nd trimester. I was standing for about 10-15 minutes in the same spot during the morning meeting at work and all of a sudden I got dizzy and lightheaded and just fell to my knees. Everyone thought it was my sugar so they gave me a Sunny Delight to drink and called an ambulance. They checked my sugar and by then it was normal. I declined to go to the hospital with them because I already had a dr appt scheduled for that day. At my dr appt she acted like it was nothing and it happened all the time. At the time it really upset me that my dr did nothing to calm my fears or make me feel better about the situation. But I guess it was completely normal. Pregnancy puts our bodies through a lot and sometimes we just can't handle it. I hope all is well with you and you have a smoother pregnancy from here on out!
