I have had a massive headache for 2 days, not helped by pain relief. I have mild swelling but blood pressure normal (have home monitoring system thanks to a poorly father).

Therefore can't be pre-eclampsia can it? Seeing midwife later but just checking i'm not missing something serious?

best to see your midwife today to be on the safe side as it might be just dehydration.

could be biglips - will drink some more. Gotta go in this afternoon anyhow as being monitored for low platelets, so will mention it. Just feel like this pregnancy had been nothing but worry, whereas with DS i just breezed through (although felt worse iyswim)
