Maybe yes: A woman of childbearing age who has some nausea (with or without vomiting), some fatigue (feeling tired), a sharper/stronger sense of smell, mild soreness and mild swelling of her breasts, and maybe some food aversions and food cravings . . . Could be pregnant. Symptoms can occur before missing a period. Dizziness can happen with some women who have nausea and fatigue.

Get a diagnosis.: Make sure your dizziness is not due to some problem with your heart, dehydration, or the side effect of a medication. Once those are ruled out by a physician, pay attention to when it happens. Sometimes if a pregnant stands up too rapidly or stands in one place too long, she can get dizzy. Make sure you do not lay on your back because the baby/uterus can compress your aorta and lead to fainting.

Yes: Because of vascular changes blood pressure drops, and can drop suddenly if stand too quickly or on feet long time. If you find that the room is actually spinning, that is not normal and should be evaluated.

I get dizzy when I bend over or cough?

Vasovagal: It sounds like your blood pressure drops when you bend over or cough... In the normal sense the body is reacting more than what it should. Also you might have to get your blood pressure checked to make sure it is not varying significantly in different positions like laying, sitting or standing. Lastly positional vertigo is a possibility.
