Hi i am 10 wk & 5 days Pregnant. Today when i was washing Dishes and Cleaning up the house I started to get really faint and had to sit down. Is this normal? If so why did it happen?

Hi, personally I never felt faint when I was pregnant, just tired, but I don't think it's that abnormal. I do think if it happens frequently and it worries you you should speak to your doctor, but I don't think if it happens once or twice it's worrysome. Good luck!

Completely normal. Your blood volume is increasing, which lowers your blood pressure. Because of that, not enough gets to your head, especially when standing or doing something (especially cleaning). I couldn't do the dishes for more than 5 minutes without having to sit down. If it gets too bad, or if you pass out, I would definitely call the doctor, at least just to ease your mind.

Good Luck!
