My first scare

I had my first good scare last night. About 9pm I went downstairs to put clothes in the dryer. The short time I did that I had developed a headache and began feeling hot. I went to the fridge and stood there with my coffee creamer bottle pressed to my forehead. lol. Then I decided to sit on the couch in the dark. Things were getting blurry and I began to sweat. So I go outside for fresh air. As I stand there I begin to feel a faint feeling so I crouch to the ground and put my head between my legs. I sat there holding my face with my eyes closed wondering what the heck is happening. I felt better doing this, so I decide to try to get up. Nope. It happens again but worse. So I just took a seat right there on my cold dark porch and waited. I wondered if I was going to pass out or not. I didn't. Chris comes out looking for me and by this time it has subsided but I'm afraid to move. Chris goes upstairs to find out if he can find something on the web, and he did! Apparently, it can be common in most women to experience this, the baby may be laying on a main artery and you need to get on all fours to try to get her to move off of it. I was so relieved that it wasn't serious. It was really scary, I thought something was wrong with the baby. I asked several girlfriends and all but one said it happened to them too. Whew.....
