Has anyone else been having or had dizzy spells?

You could definitely try to eat more frequently and see if that slows them down. I have low blood sugar so I get really dizzy really fast if I'm not eating often enough. It gets a lot worse when I'm pregnant and was one of my first clues to take a test this time.

i sometimes get dizzy spells or more like light-headedness from low blood pressure.

I have been having them for about a week now. I have low blood pressure and I can get dizzy spells from laying down or getting up or just because! I hear its quite normal during early pregancy. It very well could be low blood sugar though, so try to eat small snacks throughout the day and see if that helps.

Yup, especially when I get up too fast, even from regular sitting. I haven't noticed a huge correlation with my eating, but if I try to get up slow it helps somewhat.
