I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant, and for the last 3 days I've been getting very dizzy, then I seem to lose all balance and fall over. It usually starts as I get dizzy, then fall over, then I get a really bad headache. My husband seems to think that it's just part of the pregnancy, but I'm worried that it could be something else... is there something that could be causing this?
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
The symptoms of dizziness, losing balance and falling at 35 week pregnancy can be due to low blood pressure or due to hypoglycemia. This may not be good for the growing baby. Hence please consult your gynecologist about this.
Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
