Obtain OB care.: Low blood pressure is normal in some women, however there can be many causes that are abnormal. See your OB doctor for these problems.

Blood pressure tend to be at its lowest in the 1st trimester. Contributing factors that can make you have your symptoms could be that you are dehydrated. Increase your water intake and add electrolyte drinks like Gatorade and alkaline water. Seek help from your OB if you continue to feel weak, especially if you are having worsening nausea and vomiting.

Low BP: There is nothing you should or could or should take to raise your BP . You need to increase your fluid intake & perhaps increase your salt intake a little bit . That will make thirsty & you woild want to drink . Avoid Soda drinks , they will actually dehydrate you . If having problems with Nausea, talk to our doctors about it . Salted Saltine crackers will help the nausea & give you some salt .
