Is fainting normal in pregnancy? In the past week while I've been in the shower, I have had to get out suddenly because I am about to faint! I've fainted a few times in my life... once right after I gave blood, and the other time was completely random. But does pregnancy cause you to faint more often? The first time in this last week, I almost fainted and then I threw up! Then this morning I almost fainted again, but didn't throw up (though I felt like I was going to). I hope my body isn't just weird!!
