Hi I'm 8 wks pregnant and this is my 2 nd wk off work because I feel so dreadful I'm not being sick but I feel it as we'll as breathless and dizzy when I stand up... I feel guilty as so many women just get on with it but I just couldn't cope with work and menial tasks are knackering so I'm just sitting around in my robe doing nothing as everything wears me out- also feel bad because women who get signed off seem to be the ones actually being sick but I'm not being sick I just feel it.. I just want to lie down all day. can anyone identify with this?

So glad you posted this Lilly, as I was just thinking the same thing! I left work after half an hour today because I felt so dizzy/light headed and breathless. I understand the dizziness can be quite normal but I certainly didn't expect the breathlessness this soon! (I'm 15wks tomorrow).
I feel awful about leaving work ( although everyone else says I'm being silly because I should be looking after myself ) - don't want people to think I'm playing the pregnancy card!
