Thank you for your query.
I think you should consult your gynecologist as soon as you can.
The kind of pain and dizziness you describe is not normal for pregnancy.
It could be the sign of an impending miscarriage.
ALso rarely an adnexal or ovarian cyst could cause such pain and dizziness on pressure.
rarely, a bowel infection or a pelvic infection could cause such symptoms.
However, please get medical attention and a proper examination and ultrasound if possible for probably causes.
take care.
