Dizzyness in the second trimester is normal! Many women experience a drop in blood pressure as the body tries to adjust to an increase in blood volume.

The typical pattern is lower than normal blood pressure in the second trimester followed by a slow rise in the third trimester which we hope doesn't go up much above your non-pregnant blood pressure!

If you are feeling dizzy from low blood pressure, try to stay cool (I always got dizzy in the shower!), lie down, and drink some water.

You may also be dizzy from low blood sugar because the baby goes through several growth spurts in the second trimester which can really make mom hungry! If you think this is why you are dizzy, drink juice or something which will give you quick sugar, then eat some protein to keep your blood sugar level up long-term.

If you are dizzy a lot, have other symptoms (such as blurry vision or headache), or faint, please call your practitioner!
