    Goodmorning, are you on iron tablets. Anaemia can be a cause of the fainting and also exhaustion can also cause that. I'll advise you get an ultrasound scan done to check the well being of your fetus and i hope you have started antenatal visits also. All you should be well as symptoms that could indicate any possible problem like bleeding and abdominal pain are absent. Take care and best wishes
