Ok, the subject above gives my symptoms but here is the rest: I had a delicious bagel with two eggs on it this morning (meat is a big turn off right now) but I had a raging headache so I had a bit of iced coffee (caffeine-doc says it's ok once in a while and I don't over do it) too. I'm at work and like a bone head I don't have any Tylenol with me and this headache will not go away. Nausea subsided greatly in the last two weeks but today I feel terrible and I'm really dizzy. I also have bigeminy. Bigeminy causes heart palpitations and mine is treated and followed by a cardiologist-this is non life threatening. However, the palpitations today are more than normal so far with this pregnancy. I haven't had much of an appetite so far with this pregnancy (3rd) so I have to remind myself to eat; I've had no problems so far. I kind of just wanted others take on what these symptoms might be; common or not, have you experienced anything like this? I can give more detail if anyone wants, I'm a bit of a nervous nelly with this pregnancy as my second pregnancy last year resulted in a miscarriage. Generally, I'm really laid back but this time around I'm more aware of every little thing that happens. Thanks all!

No to morning sickness tea is the perfect home remedy to get rid of nausea and sickness.

Hmmm Your particular symptoms have such a wide range of possible causes that it would be hard to know the exact reason for them. Could be a combination of things like not enough water + having caffeine + your bigeminy = exaggerated pregnancy symptoms AND exaggerated bigeminy symptoms. Nausea, dizziness and headaches are supposedly normal pregnancy symptoms anyway, but can be made worse if you are lacking in something or have had too much of something. Since becoming pregnant I've had a few really bad migraines that would leave me feeling awful and I could usually contribute them to too much of something or not enough of something. Not enough water for the day has triggered one, too much heat has triggered one, too much stress, or low blood sugar from not eating frequently enough. I have hypoglycemia which can and has caused me heart palpitations in the past. I mostly avoid drinking caffeine regularly because it can cause heart palpitations on it's own. I have only drank it a few times since becoming pregnant, but only after making sure I was completely hydrated, well fed, and that nothing else helped with the migraine pain first.

Best of luck!
