Feeling a bit worried but don’t want to call the assessment unit without good reason.
I’ve felt a sense of dread and anxiety for the past few days, out of the blue but which I’ve not been able to shake off. And have felt irritable.
In addition I’ve started having intense back spasms (randomly since yesterday, no pattern to them) and the period type pain I’ve been feeling has got worse, again though with no real pattern. I’ve not had any braxton hicks yet as far as I’m aware.
I’ve now started throwing up and just feel so weak and lethargic. I’ve had loads of pressure ‘down there’ which I assumed was the baby dropping more.
I woke up in the night and was completely unable to get back to sleep, just wide awake. Baby has been very active all day so no movement issues.
Is this just the third trimester catching up and generally pregnancy woes or should I be worried? Had a midwife appointment last week and no UTI although blood pressure was higher than it’s been before. Midwife wasn’t concerned.
I’ve had visual disturbances but have been reporting them for a while, assume it’s to do with eyes or being anaemic.
I have a sense something is potentially going on but equally am aware I’ve got time on my hands & could just be worrying. Would be good to hear if anyone else experienced this type of thing? Is 35w just when it all gets a bit rubbish? Or could this be more?
If you have a headache, pain in your chest or anything else that causes you concern, please go in tonight. You really could do with having your BP and urine checked soon - what was your BP when it was last checked? It's not so important if it is strictly high or not, more the increase from booking in that can be a warning sign.
