This has been happening to me over the last couple days. I don't even have to be doing anything physically exerting either. I just walked from the bathroom to the kitchen and felt faint and had to sit down. I've been laying down a lot today so far and it is helping...but I hate this.

Trying to build up my house, not tear it down namaste.gif.   Got 3 wonderful kids jumpers.gif  ribboncesarean.gif autismribbon.gif, blessed with a wonderful husband luxlove.gif and have the privilege of staying home full time to enjoy it all!

That sounds like me when I'm feeling anemic. You might get some more iron, eat some steak (if you eat meat) and maybe drink some floridix iron. Get plenty of rest.

Feel better.

I get the same thing, actually sometimes it happens to me while laying down doing nothing. My doctor said it's probably the baby putting pressure on a nerve (i think he said nerve?) that runs to your brain, which is why you may get dizzy or lightheaded. The short of breath comes from there being no more room for your organs inside and everything gets squished up until your ribcage and puts pressure on your lungs.

So fun though, huh?? I get it all the time... and have a very un-understanding household! (a 2yo and a fiance who thinks the only hard part of pregnancy is carrying an xtra 30lbs, which he "does every day, just in the form of a toolbelt, not a baby").
