    Default Fairly urgent advice needed

    Hello before you say I need to see ask a dr I asked one and they said to call an ambulance, but I hate going to the hospital when there isnt much wrong with you.
    I felt really dizzy this morning so I laid down on the floor and I think I passed out but not sure coz when I opened my eyes my kids were standing around me and were upset, I waited til I felt better then finished getting ready and took them to school. I still feel really dizzy and light headed, but I;ve had problems with low blood pressure before so I think thats whats wrong.
    I;m not really concerned for me, but I'm worried it might affect the baby, I'm 15 weeks pregnant.
    has this happened to any of you?
    Should I go to the hospital like they said or just rest? I don't want to pay an ambulance bill if its not urgent or waste hospital time over something silly like low blood pressure.

    Can you get someone to drive you & pick your kids up from school? You shouldn't be driving if your dizzy & may pass out. As then you may defiantly cause harm to your baby & your children, not to mention school run you need to be 100% alert. If it is nothing it's best to get the all clear. It it were me I would go to hospital.

    Yep I'd go to hospital too, nothing is too much of a hassle when it concerns my baby.

    I think it's also better to be safe than sorry. I would be taking a trip to the hospital, or at the least your local GP. I hope everything is/will be ok!

    Goodluck!

    Yes go to hospital. Get DH to come home and take you.
    Your blood pressure could be very low meaning not enough blood and o2 are meeting the needs of both you and bubs so by fainting, it's your body's way of saying " i cant cope, help".
    I was told once bp gets into the 90's and below, fainting occurs. It can be serious if it happens while your out with the kids, driving.....please get some help!

    Yeah defo get some professional advice, do you have a midwife or ob providing care? Maybe a different doctor rather than hospital? I hate the ER too and always seem to leave more sick than when I arrived! Do get advice/care urgently though (today).
