Patient : I'm 16 weeks pregnant and last night my face and ears started feeling really hot, the back of my head started to hurt and I fainted. I eat 3 meals a day regularly, eat snacks, stay hydrated and take my prenatal vitamins. I'm not sure why I fainted and I'm worried that something may be wrong. I have my next doctor's appointment next Thursday.
