Hi, I'm 31 weeks pregnant and woke up this morning feeling poorly. For the last few hours I have a nagging headache, stomach pains, shivering and feel nauseous on and off. DH won't be home for several hours so if I want to see someone have to make a decision soon while MIL is available to take dd.

sounds like you've got flu

see a dr just in case.

Feel fuzzy headed not thinking very clearly. Don't usually suffer from headaches and don't know if it could be a sign of something pregnancy related.

if you are concerned see a doctor

Could you try ringing NHS Direct? They tend to be very helpful for this sort of thing...
Hope you feel better soon smile

I would get it checked out. Have you got any disturbance to your sight.

Hi it maybe the time of year when all colds/coughs are coming out and when your pregnant you more prone to catching flu, id speak to a midwife or nhs direct for reassurance though 0845 4647 x

Have you tried paracetamol?

I'd give your midwive unit a ring - they are so helpful and better to get it checked.

I'd ring the delivery suite of your hospital and ask their advice. You'll get through to a MW straight away.

definitly ring just to be sure, its not worht taking any risks, even if its nothing and you feel really stupid after arranging childcare etc.

Have you called anyone yet?

Thanks everyone. Spoke to a midwife who said it sounds like flu. I think the headache is sinus related as feeling really blocked up this morning. Have to have paracetamol and plenty of fluids. Would love a day in bed but with a toddler don't think that is going to happen.

I would take the duvet downstairs shut the living room door and put cbeebies on. that is how I cope when I am ill, my kids dont normally watch ALOT of tv but when I am ill I admit to using it to keep them quiet!
