I can honestly say that today I panicked and ran to the doc. I was shopping during my lunch hour, and started feeling light headed. Plus, the baby had been quiet today. No problem - went back to the office, had something to eat, some water. I was still light headed an hour later. Called the doc, and because my bp was elevated last time - they told me to come in. I go in - urine is fine, bp is LOWER than last time (still a little high, but better 136/80), baby's heartbeat is strong, and of course, he starts kicking like crazy. : So, I drag DH to the doc for nothing... I still felt a little light headed when I got home - took a nap, and now - I feel fine. I feel like such an idiot.

You're not an idiot! IMHO if your instincts are telling you to get it checked out, it's never a bad idea to get it checked out. Sure, you might feel kind of lame if it turns out to be nothing, but getting the reassurance is a good thing!

Glad you're feeling better.
