I had a PE in 2004, a baby by c-section in 06 and a miscarriage in 07, I am now pregnant only a few weeks and do not have a Dr appt yet. I have been having dizzy spells and mild but continuous cramping. Is this normal, should I worry what can I do to control the problem until I see a doctor. could I still deliver vaginally when the time comes?

Dear eqmpn23

I hope you are well I am sorry to hear that you are havin g dizzy spells and cramping and I know that I am not an MD but I know that when my ex wife was pregnant with she had dizzy spells due to anemia (low blood pressure).

The best action is to ask your doctor when you see him it may just be that you need to have a course of iron tablets as for the cramping you will have to consult with the doctor if you haven't already done so!
Do let me know how you get on.

Kind Regards

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.Dizzy spells and mild cramps are normal during early pregnancy. It will be OK soon. But you should be worried if cramping intense with bleeding occur. See your doctor for better results.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
