Not sure if this is my maternal 'need to protect' instinct kicking in. Had morning sickness for a few weeks in the beginning. Almost gone completely now. Had a lovely lazy weekend but haven't felt right since yesterday.

Feeling very sick, but not like morning sickness, nor like a bug. Just very nauseous. I also have a headache (I'm well hydrated and don't get headaches - ever!). Feeling quite dizzy, and just want to sit and do nothing. I don't know why but I just have this strong gut instinct that something isn't right.

AIBU to feel like this? AIB silly to want to get checked out with my gp? I rarely go to the docs but just feel... weird!

I’d phone nhs direct and see what they say. Have you had too much sun? What’s your blood pressure like? Any history of UTI’s?

If you still feel like this in the morning, maybe make a gp appointment and describe your symptoms. Could it be a migraine?

bunty I had a uti recently with no symptoms apart from needing to pee all the time. Took antibiotics but the need to pee is still every 20 mins (however I put this down to pregnancy). Very little sun today and have been drinking water like a fish. Blood pressure is usually low (but the good kind of low), no idea what it is currently however...

Do you have a number for the midwives in your local hospital? I would give them a call and ask for advice, they may want to check you over. If you don't then call 111.

Call your midwife. At 19 weeks might they see you at the maternity assessment unit?

MamaNenwa Sun 10-Jun-18 21:23:37

@BrutusMcDogface possibly? I've never had one before. Not even a bad headache so no idea, I just feel really weird. I feel emotionally drained too and quite blue. Like I'm not going to wake up tomorrow. All very, very odd and completely unlike me. I feel like I must sound like a mad woman..

MamaNenwa Sun 10-Jun-18 21:24:38

I think I'm going to sleep on it and call my gp in the morning. I hope I'm just being over cautious.

BrutusMcDogface Sun 10-Jun-18 21:26:43

Hope you're ok! If you're really worried, call 111 tonight. If it is a migraine, sleep will help a lot. flowers

Thank you brutus - I'll probably wake up feeling fine (hopefully) and very silly for even posting! Never felt like this before.

I think I’d call out of hours now. Do you have a temperature?

Rachie1986 Sun 10-Jun-18 21:29:09

I would call 111 and ask their advice, to be honest. It doesn't sound like you are your mom self x

MamaNenwa Sun 10-Jun-18 21:30:35

Temperature totally normal!

Lifeisabeach09 Sun 10-Jun-18 21:38:21

Could be preeclampsia. You have some of the symptoms. Get urgent GP appointment for tomorrow.

MamaNenwa Sun 10-Jun-18 21:40:47

@Lifeisabeach09 I'm going to call them first thing and try and get an appointment. Preeclampsia didn't cross my mind but will keep it in the back of it...

Are your legs swollen?

MamaNenwa Sun 10-Jun-18 21:46:39

mis no they look pretty normal to me..

JELLYFISHANDCHIPS Sun 10-Jun-18 21:46:49

Are you feeling the baby move regularly? I'd say go with your instinct and get an appointment with your gp or call your midwife or maternity unit. No one would mind checking you over.

MamaNenwa Sun 10-Jun-18 21:50:05

jelly I only started having movements a couple of days ago. Very subtle and hard to monitor. I have an anterior placenta and have been advised that I may not feel much for a few weeks.

Definitely going to go for a check up tomorrow, no matter how silly i feel about it!

Helga55 Sun 10-Jun-18 21:53:17

Sounds very much like when I had an inner ear infection, hope you check out ok tomorrow

JELLYFISHANDCHIPS Sun 10-Jun-18 21:54:07

Honestly, no need to feel silly. If you follow Kick Count on fb you'll know they advise anyone who is concerned to get checked over. For the sake of your sanity and five minutes of a Dr or midwife's time, it is worth it. Hope you feel better soon and get some reassurance.

Wellfuckmeinbothears Sun 10-Jun-18 21:55:17

Hope you’re ok op. Trust your gut, at 19 weeks I’d give the maternity unit a call, they might want to get you in to monitor you x

OldHag1 Sun 10-Jun-18 21:56:41

How much water have you drunk? Is it possible you have had too much? It is possible to overhydrate and have some of those symptoms.

Worriedandunsurewhattodo Sun 10-Jun-18 22:02:30

Hey OP. Personally I'd head to your maternity ward/tambooti/triage tomorrow if you still don't feel great. Say you're not feeling well and they should run the usual tests including blood test. The blood test comes back the same day (mine did anyway) and will flag up any potential infection you may have brewing. Some infections are bad news during pregnancy and need to be treated asap.

It might sound extreme but it's best to be safe. It most likely is innocent and just your hormones. Your body goes through a lot of changes in every trimester flowers
