Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Towards the middle of pregnancy, women experience a natural decrease in their blood pressure. This can predispose them to 'postural hypotension'. This means that depending on your position or activity, you have symptoms related to this low blood pressure just like you describe. While this might be totally normal, based on what you are describing, it is worth telling your doctor about it and having a visit scheduled to check your blood pressure, blood counts, and thyroid function.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
