Dizziness or Light Headed

Early pregnancy symptom

Dizziness in early pregnancy is generally caused by a drop in blood pressure. As levels of progesterone increase it causes your blood vessels to relax which in turn causes a drop in blood pressure which can lead to dizziness and fainting. Feelings of nausea can also lead women to eat less which can cause a drop in blood sugar levels which may also lead to feeling light headed. Getting up too quickly, wearing constrictive clothing, and low iron levels in your blood can also cause dizziness.
