Dizzy and faint

Question:
I am 21 weeks pregnant and I'm starting to feel NVP is that normal? I am feeling dizzy and faintish as well. I hadn't felt like this in previous months nor did I go through any of this with my now 11 yo daughter when I had her. This is all new to me in a way because I felt blessed not to have went thru any of this with her and now after 11 yrs. I'm worried about how long this is going to last simply because I don't want it to get worse and cause harm. What can I do? Especially about the dizzy feeling, because I don't like that at all.

Answer:
See your doctor and discuss these symptoms with him/her. You did not mention if you are taking anti-nausea medication as this could make you feel dizzy and faint. Consult your doctor.
