    Hi there, I found the following article:

    Pregnancy Dizziness (Feeling Faint)

    Dizziness can occur anytime middle to late pregnancy. The pregnancy hormone progesterone dilates blood vessels so blood tends to pool in the legs. In addition, more blood is going to your growing uterus. This can cause a decrease in blood pressure, especially when changing positions, resulting in dizziness.

    Faintness and dizziness can also be affected by poor eating habits. When your blood sugar levels are too low, you may feel faint.

    Recommendations:
    • Move around often when standing for long periods of time.
    • Try lying on your left side to rest.
    • Try to move slowly when standing from a sitting position; avoid sudden movements.
    • Eat regular meals to prevent low blood sugar.
    From http://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/pregnancy-coping-with-discomforts?page=2

    If you are still really concerned, you could always call another doctor and ask for a second opinion. I'm sorry that you're having to deal with this. I hope it gets better soon.
