This is my 4th pregnancy and I've never had this before, and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about it.  


The last 2 nights I thought I had the flu, but during the day I'm pretty much fine.  


It starts with a weird "blurp" of dizziness (before bed, like 9 or 10pm) and then my bowels get crazy.  The first night I had diarrhea so bad I felt like dying (sorry if that is TMI) and then I started shaking whenever the urge was coming on again.  We called the midwife b/c I thought it might be a strange start to labor.  Eventually everything passed and I fell asleep.


Then last night I got the same "blurp" of dizziness and had like 2 bouts of diarrhea with mild shaking and went to sleep and was fine.  


Now this morning I'm just very slightly dizzy.  Nothing to stop me from doing things, but I notice it.  


I do have low blood pressure, nothing dangerous, but it is on the low end.  I don't know if that has anything to do with it.


Just wondering if anyone has experienced this or has any insight.  


TIA mamas :)
