Dizziness during pregnancy: Causes and tips to cope with it

Dizziness is most likely just another pregnancy symptom due to hormone and blood pressure changes. As baby continues to grow, the pressure your uterus places on blood vessels can add to the dizziness. Some conditions like anemia, hyperemesis gravidarum (severe morning sickness), hypertension and preeclampsia could also cause dizziness. It is more common in the first trimester, but you may experience it throughout your pregnancy. What causes dizziness during pregnancy? The main cause of dizziness in pregnancy is due to the rising hormones that cause your blood vessels to relax and widen. This helps increase the blood flow to your baby, but it slows the return of the blood in the veins to you. This causes your blood pressure to be lower than usual, which can reduce the blood flow to your brain, temporarily causing dizziness. Dizziness is also caused by low blood sugar levels that may occur as your body adapts to changes in your metabolism. Women who are anemic or who have varicose veins may be more susceptible to dizziness than others. During the second trimester, dizziness may be caused because your growing uterus puts pressure on blood vessels. Dizziness may also occur later in your pregnancy if you lie on your back, allowing the weight of the baby to press on your vena cava (a large vein that carries blood from your lower body to your heart). When to see the doctor for dizziness  If your dizziness is accompanied by vaginal bleeding or severe abdominal pain, call your doctor immediately—this might be a sign of ectopic pregnancy. It's also time to talk with your doctor if things get so bad that you faint. Ways to deal with dizziness during pregnancy   When you start to feel lightheaded, sit or lie down right away, and put your head between your knees (if your belly allows it). Always lie on your left side—it'll help increase blood flow to your heart and brain. You can help keep dizziness at a minimum by taking care of yourself in a few basic ways: • Eat regularly and choose healthy snacks • Drink lots of water (dehydration can make you dizzy) • Wear loose, comfortable clothing • Get up slowly from sitting or lying down • Try not to stand for long periods • Don't lie on your back after the first trimester • Avoid getting overheated Content source Feature Image Source
