Am 38 weeks and 6 days, have had a killer headache all day. feel a bit sore along top of shoulders as well. Do not normally suffer from headaches

No history of high blood pressure (have had low bp all way through)

Just wondering how 'bad' does a headache have to be before you shoud start worrying>?

don't think its a single symptom but the grouping together of headache, swelling, raised BP and protein in urine that are concerning

I would personally suggest you call midwife though and get your bp and urine checked

get it checked anyway ask your m/w to do a simple urine test and blood pressure test, i never had any history of high bloodpressure but developed pre eclampsea, may be nothing but do get checked
