(HealthDay News) -- It's common for women to feel dizzy during pregnancy, for reasons that include pressure on blood vessels caused by the expanding uterus, and the need to eat more food.

The Womenshealth.gov website suggests how to reduce dizziness during pregnancy:

  • Stand up slowly.
  • Try not to stand for long periods.
  • Don't skip regular meals.
  • Lie down on your left side when resting.
  • Wear loose-fitted clothing.
