Not the classic: These aren't the classic symptoms of migraine, but it may be similar in some respects. In any case - see a Dr for an exam and take it step by step.

A portion of my left side of my head feels numb. Its in the area where my left temporal lobe is. Its usually intervals of every 4 hours. Why?

Whoa, boy: Forget about your left temporal lobe. The brain feels nothing except sensations from other parts of the body. This is all about outside your skull. You forgot to mention how long this has been happening, how long it lasts, & what "numb" means: Less feeling, tingling, etc. That still won't be enough. You'll have to leave your computer & see a nonvirtual doctor to find out why. ...Read more

Is it normal for my left side of my head just to go numb for like 10 mins nd feel dizzy I mean im 7 months pregnant nd its the first time happening?

Probably benign: Most likely your left occipital nerve to the back of your head isn't working well, usually temporary, verapamil, occasionally used for migraine or migraine variant, has nothing to do with your symptoms. If you have a history of neck problems, occipital neuralgia is frequently associated. If you are having headache, this may still be true but other things would need to be considered also. ...Read more
