Light headed when I stand for long period of time

I am 21 about to be 22 weeks pregnant. I get really light headed when I stand for a long period of time. For example just a few minutes ago I was standing at the stove to make me and my brother a grilled cheese sandwich. I finished his but once I got to making my sandwich I felt really light headed to the point where I couldn't stand and had to sit. (This has happened only two times or so before, and when I first found out I was pregnant the same thing happened) My brother finished the cooking for me. I get plenty of fluids and drank a lot of water today. When I get light headed the back of my neck gets this heavy feeling and hurts. I sit down and try to eat but can't finish my food even though I am hungry feeling still. Is this normal? I don't have any health issues although I am over weight. I need to talk to my doctor but until I can, can someone please explain to me maybe why this is happening. I'm scared I have health issues and I don't want my baby born unhealthy or affected in a negative way? Please help thanks

You need to see your doc. There could be many reasons why this is happening and your doc needs to evaluate you and do some tests. You may have high blood pressure, have gestational diabetes, or just need to watch what and when you are eating and drinking. But your doc is the only one that can tell you what it is.
