Agree with low bp as a possible cause. I had this in both pregnancies and fainted a few times.

Yep I fainted many times in both pregnancies. ..low bp for me too.
My advice is to keep well hydrated and get yourself some compression stockings to help reduce your chances of it happening again.

It happened to me during my first pregnancy (out shopping!) then had a couple of close calls with my 2nd. My dr wasn't too concerned, it can just be a blood pressure drop, but if I remember correctly they did check my iron and of course blood pressure checks at routine appointments.
I'm pregnant with my 3rd and I know if I feel any signs that my blood pressure is dropping, I quickly sit down (ob told me the most dangerous thing about fainting would be hitting something as you fall), then when I feel a bit better, get some air, water and a snack.
It's not a nice feeling, hope it was a once off for you!

Getting a taxi home then I'll go to the doctors to get a checkup.

Iron was good in December and bp was fine (120/78).

I had a few blood pressure drops in my first trimester of my second pregnancy, I'd get lightheaded but never fainted. It sorted itself out as the pregnancy progressed though.

Hopefully it goes away. Few weeks and I'll be 2nd trimester.
