DD was born at 35 weeks due to me having severe pre-eclampsia which went undiagnosed as, although I was having symptoms, my blood pressure was still in "normal" range, although much higher than my normal. Post birth I had an eclamptic seizure and developed HELLP syndrome, was very poorly in intensive care. I'm now 27 weeks pregnant with DD2. Doing my own BP checks with a loaned monitor, and my BP has been higher than my normal for 2 weeks, although still in normal range. I also have protein in urine discovered when I saw consultant last week. She was on verge of starting medication but decided to watch and wait. Due to see her again next Friday at my next growth scan. Today I am feeling rough. Been suffering heartburn throughout pregnancy, but it is out of control today. I feel a bit sick. Mild headache but it won't shift, and feeling light headed. Yesterday I had an episode of flashing lights in my vision but that went away quickly. DH is concerned. And I am too, but part of me thinks I'm being paranoid and over thinking everything because of what happened last time. So, am I paranoid?
Spent half the night in maternity assessment unit, and apparently I'm being paranoid. Still have a headache this morning, but heartburn has settled. It's exactly how my pre eclampsia started last time but I guess I just have to ignore and get on with it.
