I would say its probably either low blood pressure or your blood sugar levels. I had one day like this and it was horrible so really feel for you. I ate some sugary foods and felt better for it. Speak to your dr or midwife hun x

Hi! Im 18 weeks now but had horrid dizzyness which started around 15 weeks, it would come from nowhere and felt really washed out too. At my 16 week check the mw confirmed low blood pressure. Theres not a lot you can do, just go from lying to sitting and standing slowly and if you feel faint sit down to prevent falling. Give your mw a ring and have your bp checked. I feel a lot better now. X

sorry to hear you're feeling poorly. I would definitely advise to go back to the doctors and see if they can sign you off for abit longer, you can't work feeling dizzy all the time. Hopefully the doctor will be able to do some tests and get to the bottom of it for you, so you can start a treatment plan. All I can say is keep your spirits up, growing a human is hard work and sometimes our bodies just need a little help!! Hope you feel better soon.

What colour is your wee? If it is dark yellow/orange then you are dehydrated which can cause dizziness (the moment you feel thirsty you are already dehydrating).
If wee is fine then other possibilities are - blood pressure (too high or low), sugar levels (too high or low) or iron levels (too low/anaemia)
