I am now 19 weeks pregnant, and after standing, not even for long periods of time, like standing in a que at the supermarket to pay for groceries, i start getting, weak, nauseus, feel faint and break out in a cold sweat.
I have to drop everything and get a chair and water.
my blood pressure and sugar levels are fine.
Is this normal?

You should also check your haemoglobin levels. Feeling faint is a fairly normal symptom of pregnancy though.
