Today I have been feeling progressively worse all day,nothing that would worry me on it's own but all together and coming on so quickly is concerning me. Symptoms are sore head, nausea, heartburn/indigestion/possibly trapped wind pain at base of ribs, really really tired all of a sudden and generally just feeling off as well as mildly painful braxton hicks-irregular but uncomfortable. I don't have a midwife appointment for another 5 weeks but don't want to make a big fuss over nothing.I know a few of these can be PE symptoms but if anything my blood pressure is on the low side and was checked a week ago,at which time I also had a urine test and bloods taken,also I have no swelling which makes me think it probably isn't that. This is baby no.3 and I don't remember anything like this from the last two!
If your eyes are blurred / flashing lights this is also a symptom of pre-eclampsia. However some people get dry eyes and floaty bits in pregnancy anyway....the only way of knowing for sure is to get checked out. Sorry.
No one knows, they think it might be something to do with the placenta malfunctioning. There are various risk factors such as a family history of preeclampsia, obesity etc. but it can affect anyone. Doesn't matter if BP normally low. They can test your urine fairly quickly and easily for protein at the hospital and do your BP.
Hi All just to update came down with heavy head cold from late Friday night/early Saturday morning so put it all down to that.However new collection of symptoms last night/this morning and ended up in EOU.Have posted a new thread,if anyone has experience of this would really appreciate input,thanks!
