Is dizziness and passing out cause for concern in pregnancy?

About an hour ago I passed out on the bathroom floor. I am 11 weeks pregnant. I was at the kitchen sink then out of no where I got super dizzy and nauseous and I went to the bathroom because I thought I was going to throw up. I went to sit in the doorway and the next thing I knew my son was talking to me asking if I was ok. I was sprawled on the floor but the weird thing is I remember dreaming in that time I was out. Is it common to feel dizzy like that during pregnancy?? Is this something I should be concerned about?? I never felt this sick 20yrs ago when I was pregnant my son but I know each pregnancy is different.

Thanks, and now that I think about it, I didn't eat much yesterday n hadn't eaten dinner yet. It's been difficult to eat with the nausea n food aversions. When my son got me up off the floor I ate a peanut butter n jelly sandwich n I felt better. This morning I'm a bit sore tho from hitting the sink cabinet. I will call the dr n let her know what happened. Thanks again!

Definitely get it checked out. It could be the result of low blood pressure or low blood sugar, which is a concern.

I would say yes kinda normal those are symptoms of pregnancy but actually passing out i would really recommend u telling ur doctor that can be dangerous maybe u need rest or more vitamins because your body is going tru changes
