I fainted this morning, for the first time. Is this because I am pregnant?

It may be, because fainting is a complaint of pregnant women, particularly around 16-22 weeks. All the nutrients which are carried to your baby, and all the waste products that are taken away come via your blood. In pregnancy your blood volume increases and the blood concentration of, for example, red blood cells which carry oxygen decreases. Sometimes when you haven''t eaten or are tired, or low in energy, you may feel weak suddenly and may pass out. This is especially so if you stand up suddenly, or lie flat on your back. It is usually not sinister, and is your body''s way of telling you to ease up whatever you are doing at that time, preserve your energy and eat more fuel.
