In brief: Speak to OB doctor

See your OB doctor and check your blood pressure , to make sure you don't have pre-eclompsia .

Most likely it is not going to be preeclampsia, many pregnant women are sensitive to the vascular changes of pregnancy, which means that with prolonged standing, blood pools down in the legs, thus affecting blood supply elsewhere. So best to keep your feet moving even when standing to aid the venous return to the heart, take breaks as possible, eat frequent small meals, hydrate
