My morning sickness (which had never been severe) waned sometime between 10 and 11 weeks. I'm at 15w5d now, and for the last week or two I've had this strange experience...
Whenever I have to stand for more than a minute or two I start to feel my legs go a bit weak. I feel slightly queasy and dizzy and my heart starts to feel like its pounding. On one or two occasions these feelings progressed to almost passing out -- where I felt clammy, heard rushing in my ears, and my vision started to blur/fade a bit.
I haven't actually passed out, because I try to sit down or lie down as quickly as possible. When I do, the dizziness and such goes away pretty quickly. The queasiness also fades, though more slowly.
I'm going to see my midwife this week and I'll certainly ask her then, but has anyone had this experience? Any thoughts? Advice?
It happens whether I'm out in hot sun or indoors in A/C, at different times of day, and whether I've eaten or not. My first thought was dehydration but I feel like I'm getting a lot of liquids (plus eating lots of water-filled summery fruits like canteloupes, grapes, watermelons).
I'm SO excited for my vacation (camping on Cape Cod with my SO, July 10-17) and I don't want to be worried about this while I'm out there!
