Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Dizziness is common in pregnancy due to the effect of progesterone hormone on the body and blood pressure.
If all your investigations are normal, then you neednot worry.
You should drink plenty of fluids( approximately 3-4 litres a day) , with some fluid consisting of salted lime water. Avoid standing for prolonged period and do foot movements several time while sitting, to improve blood circulation.
Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Increased heart rate should be evaluated

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
CRP is high in pregnancy, and it is a normal finding.
Increased heart rate needs to be evaluated.
You should get your thyroid hormone levels checked and an ECG done to confirm the cause of increased heart rate.
If the ECG is not confirmatory, then an echocardiogram should be done.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
