    I would call the hospital and see what they say. It can be normal but it could also be something like high blood preasure.

    Best to get it checked out. I started getting high blood pressure in my first pregnancy at 20 weeks.

    Could be low BP... which is kind of common in pregnancy, but worth mentioning if you have an appointment soon. If not, I'd book one. I wouldn't seriously stress, as in go to the ER or anything, but I'd at least book an appointment to bring it up when you have time.

    I'm currently 8 weeks and have been extremely tired all the time for the past 3 weeks, have gained gained everywhere. Not extremely but have practically filled up everywhere that my clothes are much tighter.

    Is this normal?

    Dizziness comes and goes, nothing too major

    As stated by someone else, it probably is more a case of low blood pressure. A low BP will cause dizzyness and a feeling of off balance. Have you eaten today?

    Barbs - I out grew all my jeans by 9-10wks and still am tired all the time (15wks now). Some are lucky and don't grow the belly straight away, others can show a lot quicker.

    I would get your blood pressure checked out. Plus your iron levels.

    I have very low blood pressure and am constantly dizzy, I also have low iron levels.

    They can't really do anything for LB, but you have to be very careful that it isnt High, as dizziness is a sign of preeclampsia, which is not good.
    If it continues I would go to either dr or medical centre.

    Either way I hope everything is ok, and you start to feel better soon.
