    My sister is seven months pregnant and is fainting a lot. The doctor said that this is fine, but I don't think so. Her face turns gray, and her lips blue. She is out for two minutes or more each time. Can you please help?

    I'm not a doctor and can't diagnose your sister, but I don't think its normal for pregnant women to have their lips turn blue and then often faint. Yes, dizziness is common, but this seems to be a bit much. Go to BabyCenter.com and look for "Dizziness and Fainting during Pregnancy" for ideas on things pregnant women can do to not faint and what to do if these things don't work. However, I would suggest returnign to the doctor or getting a second opinion.


    Plesae let us know how she is doing.

    Good luck!
