Definitely went through the dizzy spells in the early stages of my pregnancy(completely normal just your body getting used to the increased blood flow) also you might have been a bit dehydrated your body requires more fluids. Unfortunately pregnant women have nose bleeds just from increased blood flow. It sounds like your pretty normal the dizziness should get a whole lot better as you progress just be sure to stay hydrated. If you have more concerns I encourage you to speak to your doctor they helped me a lot as it was my 1st pregnancy. Good luck and congrats!View Thread
As far as telling what the gender is, the only sure way is by Amniocentisis(sp?) which I'm not sure a doctor would do this early as there is a risk to mother and child. There is no way to influence gender, once the sperm meets the egg the gender is determined as the sperm gives the X(girl) or Y(boy). Drinking heavily while not influence the gender or miscarriage it could harm her health so I do suggest quitting or at least slowing down on it. Good luck with your decision whatever it may be.View Thread
