    Hi Shaunie,

    ​First a foremost no disrespect to Jack but I would disregard what he is saying, he isn't a medical professional and shouldn't be suggesting that he has the answers from such a short description of what you are feeling.

    ​Whilst your symptoms are suggesting something Anxiety related you are pregnant so this needs some sort of consideration so it might be worthwhile going back to see your doctor again just for another check up and stuff. It may well be nothing and you may be suffering Anxiety as a result of being pregnant who knows but never the less at 29 weeks your better off being checked over by a professional.

    ​For anything Anxiety related then try not to let yourself get overly worked up. Your going through a really stressful time as it is. Try and do anything that will keep your mind off things, I find music a really good way of relaxing.

    Keep your head up hun!

      No disrespect to jack either but I really don't understand what he's saying?

      I've basically lived at the Dr's this whole pregnancy and no one is giving me answers they keep saying everything fine and that pregnant women get dizzy during pregnancy I didn't with my first but this pregnant is a lot different.... I'm just struggling so much and I really thinks there's more too it but how can I get help when my Dr isn't listening to me? Thank you for replying

      hi shaunie.  as a an ex-midwife, i tend to start with the basics.  have u had ur iron/heamoglobin levels checked recently?  u maybe slightly anemic.  that could cause the dizzyness. check with ur midwife.

      also, cos of the hormonal changes of pregnancy your  blood pressure (B/P) will be generally lower than when ur not pregnant. whilst this normal, it can also make u feel dizzy.  to counteract this, when u  get up from the sitting position, do so  very slowly to allow the B/P to adjust.  do drink plenty of fluids - water is best, as this help boost the volume of fluid in the vessels helping your B/P to adjust more readily.  

      all pregnancies are different, so there's no point comparing to the first one. it's important that you remain as anxiety free as possible as baby can pick up when ur stressed out.  is there a yoga class u can attend or/and an ante natal class?  breathing exercises are also very effective at helping u relax & very beneficial to both baby & you. try to get a relaxation routine in your daily life and this will help u take focus off the compulsive anxious thoughts.  can i PM u with some de-stresing techniques.  the moderator usually intercepst when i make therapeutic intervention suggestions.

      meanwhile try to keep calm
