    Hi, my question is if anybody else feels a bit faint when they stand up sometimes? I’m 9 weeks pregnant today and I’ve just had the worst week ever… I’m scared I’m gonna actually pass out at some point… Whenever I stand up to to go the kitchen my vision goes blurry, and my ears buzz… This buzzing thing usually lasts a few minutes, but last time it was longer than usual. It’s terrifying :S

    Dear RACHEL,

    Blurred vision during pregnancy and tinnitus (medical term for that buzzing in the ears) are not among the most common pregnancy symptoms, although blurred vision may be related to dizziness and nausea.

    These symptoms are more commonly associated with anemia, high blood pressure, iron deficiency… My advice is that you report all these symptoms to your doctor as they should be monitored as soon as possible in order to prevent pregnancy-related diseases such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, etc.

    I hope I have been able to help,

    Best regards
