hi all! i had a quick question about dizziness...has this ever been a pregnancy symptom for anyone?? today is 7 DPO for me, and ever since last thursday (3 DPO) i have been dizzy/lightheaded. i had vertigo last year after flying to san francisco for vacation and having a very bad cold and earache at the same time...so i know what that was like and why that happened. this is kind of mystifying, though. we did go away for vacation last week, but we drove both ways...no flying and no cold with earache this time. just curious if anyone else has ever experienced this during pregnancy?? TIA!!
Dizziness was my first pg symptom with my ds. I got dizzy and then thought, OMG am i pg? and then I felt my breasts and they were sore and more full, then I got really excited and bought an HPT. I waited until AF was due and tested
Hope you get one too

wow...that's wild that dizziness could be a pregnancy symptom! my symptoms with DS were the typical that you always hear about...sore boobs, nausea and morning sickness to boot, etc. but never dizziness. i hope that is what it is!! i am feeling really hopeful right now!!
my guess is it has something to do with an increased progesterone level. i've never been pg, but i've taken progesterone in the past and it really made me dizzy. also, these past few cycles, i've been feeling dizzy during the tww and hoping that it was a sign of pregnancy....
if it is due to progesterone, like most of the other early pg symptoms (sore bbs, etc) it's hard to tell who's coming; or :
hmmm, well i've never ever had dizziness/lightheadedness before AF so i'm still hoping for a BFP soon!! i tested yesterday (7 DPO) and i got a BFN...with DS, though, i didn't get a BFP until 9 DPO so i'm hoping that it was just too early yesterday to test. i hate the 2WW...so stressful!!
It was for me with both my girls. I barfed until Madyson literally came out of me. And with Sara I was nauseous and dizzy and had fainting spells nearly every day until I was hospitalized with her. I've been nauseous and dizzy for the last two days and took a test but it was a bfn.: Hopefully it's just too early for me.
