38 weeks and suddenly dizzy
tessie_anell posted:
I was sitting, watching a movie and had just finished a light snack when it hit me. It has been well over an hour now and not subsiding. I've read about different possibilities online however none seem to fit. I have high iron, its been a joke all day that I'm drinking water like a fish, and I'm using the restroom about every half hour.
I tried laying on my left side for awhile, but that didn't make any difference. I'm not feeling any other symptoms, no nausea or headaches. Any suggestions?
