I really don't feel well in my self.

I had bloods done on Friday (fbc/iron/gtt) so waiting for results.

I keep seeing "stars" like colourful little dots. My feet and fingers have swelled a lot, I woke up swelled up.

I have really bad poops, feel so sick. Like I have low sugar/going to pass out but can't physically eat anything. It is very hot but even sat in front of the fan I feel ill and sweaty.

I'm 33 weeks.

I honestly feel so poorly that Iv had to keep my 2 dc off school as I can't physically walk them to school, and I have no one to take them for me. 😪

You need to call the maternity unit/midwife ASAP. This can be a sign of preeclampsia and needs to be checked out as a matter of urgency.

Have you got someone who can watch your DC?

I think you should see a doctor or call your midwife team to see if you need further assessments. They should have most of your blood test results by now too

Call your midwife right away. Could be nothing but the swelling is something they really look out for do better safe than sorry

Definitely call your midwife, could be in indication of pre-eclampsia which can be serious. Hope you feel better soon.

Please call your day unit. I have mild early preeclampsia and these are all things they tell me to be aware of. It could be nothing to worry about but the earlier these things are treated the better.
Hope it goes ok op flowers

How are you feeling OP? Have you called Maternity Triage? Hope your ok.

I have mild/controlled pre-eclampsia and the swelling, stars and feeling sucks are all signs we're told to go into hospital for straight away. Have you got a blood pressure machine? Did they test your urine for protein yesterday? Please go and get checked out.

Hi sorry for not updating!
