How can I manage dizziness in pregnancy?

Get a diagnosis.: Make sure your dizziness is not due to some problem with your heart, dehydration, or the side effect of a medication.

Is it normal to feel slightly dizzy in early pregnancy. Sometimes feel like slightly in water?

Further testing: During pregnancy, there is a redistribution of your blood volume, which can certainly contribute to a feeling a dizziness. Nausea from morning sickness can also cause dizziness.

I'm on birth control so we don't use a condom. 2 months on it. Randomly threw up at work today, nothing but acid. Felt dizzy before hand. Pregnancy?

Unlikely: If you are taking your birth control pills at the same time everyday, it is unlikely that vomiting once is due to pregnancy. There are a lot of other things that can cause dizziness and vomiting. As long as it goes away and you don't have other symptoms, it is unlikely to be anything to worry about. Hope this helps. ...Read more
