Multiple pregnancy &amp  dizziness
Hi doc,

I am pregnant with triplets. I am still in the first trimester. When I took a blood test a month ago I had slight anaemia. I am now constantly dizzy. I feel as if I am spinning and when i walk, I sometimes feel a bit faint. The feeling is awful.

I also seem to be a bit out of breath. Is this normal, or could I be a bit more anaemic now? My doc didn''t put me on any iron supplements. I am taking preg-omega supplements daily.

Please advise. Thx.

These could be normal preganncy symptoms but they are probably worsened by the anaemia. You should take iron supplemmets.
