Pregnant. Feels sick, light headed, sweating during journey. Is it due to sudden drop in blood pressure?

I am 7 months pregnant and whilst a passenger in a car journey today i started to feel sick then it turned into a wave of light headedness then went pale white then started sweating all over... is this to do with a sudden plummet in my blood pressure? What confuses me was that i wasnt doing anything it just came on all of a sudden aboout 7/8 minutes into the journey?

Thanks for writing to us.
The sudden feeling of light headedness that you felt is likely to be due to motion sickness which is commonly seen during pregnancy. It is best to suck on a ginger candy to avoid such happenings in future.
