I had my prenatal Appointment today with my Midwife I have been blacking out this past week and we can't figure out why, iron levels are great, eating well, drinking lots blood pressure fine so I have to go see my doctor if it happens again just to be safe. Baby sounded wonderful! Nice strong heartbeat of 150bpm<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
Now I am just hoping I stop blacking out!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">

Congrats, Mama and I hope they find out what is causing the blackouts. That has to be so scary, especially with other little ones in the house.

Do you think maybe your blood sugar could be too low? Are you shaky or sweaty prior to passing out? Probably not. Does it happen if you change positions real fast like standing up in the morning when you first wake up? That could mean a temporary drop in your B/P that you could prevent by being very careful and sitting for a while before you stand up.<br><br>
Hope it's one of those weird preggo symptoms that go away on it's own.

I blacked out a few times during my second pregnancy. I think my ob explained it to me that our blood pressure tends to be lower during pregnancy and thus, making you more prone to passing out.<br><br>
I remember I passed out right in the bank in front of everyone - so embarassing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Hope this passes for you soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
