Hello hot flashes! From the beginning of this pregnancy my inner body temp has increased. I am always hot! No matter what the temp is outside I sleep with the air on 65 degrees! I need to be cold when sleeping!
Lately however I've been hit with random moments of dizziness. I'll be up and walking and all of a sudden feel like I'm going to pass out. I never have and I discussed it with my dr and she said it could be due to the fact that I started increasing my workouts. She advised me to drink more water and eat mini meals throughout the day.
In my birthing classes they told us the warning signs that we need to be careful for and that if you are having dizzy spells associated with black outs, blurred vision or seeing spots you should call your dr immediately. This could be a sign of high blood pressure. Luckily I haven't had any of those signs and I always take my Bp after a spell and that has been fine
Yesterday i had another occurrence. I had gone with friends to work out and then to get our nails done. I snuck a fruit bar in between but probably should have eaten more or drank more water. At the nail salon they usually have the door open and fans going. Yesterday they didnt and I started to feel uncomfortable. Then all of a sudden I started feeling like I was sweating profusely and my head, back and chest felt like it was on fire. I got up to get some water which helped. I felt better but must have looked awful cause the nail guys kept getting me more water and asking if I was ok. My friend I was with said my face was bright red and my feet looked really swollen. She also happens to be a nurse and took my Bp in her car. It was a little high but nothing to be concerned about. She told me to go home and relax. I had to work. It actually ate and felt a lot better. However I was scared
Today I'm boarding a plane to fly to Wisconsin for my baby shower. And I'm nervous about flying. I packed a bag full of sandwiches as snacks in case I start to feel dizzy or faint. I'm also wearing loose and comfortable clothes. So hopefully I will have no issues on the plane!
Have any of you flown while pregnant. Any tips? What about the hot flashes or dizzy spells?
