33 Weeks pregnant and Fainted Should I be worried??

I was going up stairs with DD this morning, carrying her like I always do, and I fainted.

I was out for a couple mins I think but not sure since DD is the only other person here with me.

DD seems fine, thank god that could have been bad I worry about how she could have fell down the stairs while I was out etc.

Now I am just wondering why I fainted.

I have ate today, normally I don't eat breakfast, but I had a branmuffin and some Lucky Charms cereal. LOL Also a Coffee, decaf, and some Juice.

So I don't think it's from my blood sugar being low.

Should I be worried??

What should I do?? I can't get a hold of DH at work he is in a lunch meeting.

sounds like you didn't have enough protein. I know that when I don't have enough protein in general, but especially while pregnant, I feel kind of faint!

Yeah, I'd call the doc. If for nothing else, just to keep them aware of what's going on.

call the doctor. maybe your iron is low?

It wasn't when I was pregnant, but I used to get dizzy and I passed out a few times. My iron levels were super low.

I got dizzy with the feeling I would faint a few times when pg w/ older DS. Turned out I was dehydrated. Make sure you get enough water each day, and do call your OB and tell them what happened.

It sounds like you had alot of sugar too, juice and Lucky Charms. I used to get reallly faint headed after eating stuff like that because my sugar would drop suddenly. HTH

AWWW- Big hugs! This happened to me when I was about 35 weeks. My midwife said it was probably caused by a drop in blood pressure. I would call your ob/mw just to make sure, they may want to see you/run your vitals, but it's probably nothing.
