It is Dizziness or feeling faint which is a normal symptom during pregnancy.. The main cause of dizziness in pregnancy is due to the rising hormones that cause your blood vessels to relax and widen. This helps increase the blood flow to your baby, but it slows the return of the blood in the veins to you.. This causes your blood pressure to be lower than usual, which can reduce the blood flow to your brain, temporarily causing dizziness..
Dizziness is also caused by low blood sugar levels that may occur as your body adapts to changes in your metabolism. Women who are anemic or who have varicose veins may be more susceptible to dizziness than others.. During the second trimester, dizziness may be caused because your growing uterus puts pressure on blood vessels. Avoid standing for long periods- If you must stand, make sure that you keep your feet moving to help increase circulation.. Get up slowly from either sitting or lying down.. Eat regularly. Avoid long periods between meals- it is better to snack throughout the day.. Avoid hot baths or showers.. Avoid lying on your back once you reach the middle of your second trimester.. Wear loose, comfortable clothing to avoid restricting circulation.. eat foods rich in iron..
thank u dr shilpitha
