Feeling dizzy during pregnancy is nothing to be worried about as your cardiovascular system is prone to changes such as a higher heart rate, the heart pumping more blood and the blood in the body increasing by around 40 percent to support the child as well. Your blood pressure may also decrease at the onset of pregnancy, achieve its lowest point during mid pregnancy and then rise back to normal at the end of pregnancy.

The cardiovascular system is capable of adjusting to these changes, but occasionally it falters, bringing on the feeling of dizziness and light headedness.
