the past few days I have been feeling very light headed and a bit tippy. I know my balance is way off because of being pregnant; also I have not been getting enough sleep so I think that has something to do with it as well. Anyone else? Any suggestions?

That's something I think you should let your midwife or doctor know, it can be a symptom of a bigger problem. I do wonder though if you are drinking enough water?

how's your blood pressure? if water and protien do not help, i would get a liver panel done ASAP.

any swelling in your hands and feet or face?

I bet it has to do with iron too. I have always gotten anemic towards the end. I would just eat more fresh spinach salads!
