Some thoughts..: What you're describing can be caused by dozens of things: blood pressure, blood sugar, thyroid, hormone changes with pregnancy. I've had patients really concerned about low blood sugar with symptoms of lightheadedness. I tell them if they have a glass of orange juice and the symptoms go away, it could be the sugar. Some people will even check their sugars with a glucometer. Best of luck!
