Ok so today I've been feeling extremely unwell! I can't breath, I'm wheezing and keep coughing(could be cold related I don't know?) I'm incredibly exhausted even sitting up gets me out of breath.. I've been really sick for a long time this morning I was unable to keep fluid down but that's eased off tmi here but I also have diarrhoea 😳 I was sent home from work as i almost fainted 3 times all I could see was white and floaters! I'm trying my best to rest but I have a two year old so I'm finding it hard! Do you think my symptoms warrant a trip to hospital or just try and replax.. I'm almost 30 weeks and baby seems ok I can feel her on the move and stuff any advice is appreciated x

Ring midwife

Yes. You need to speak to someone medical. The visual disturbances alone warrant investigation.

I don't like to make a fuss (I know it's not only my health I should be concerned about) I just hate the way midwifes maje you feel sometimes, I can hardly keep my eyes open I'm so exhausted ☹️X

Just ring them. You're not making a fuss. And your health is important. Air mask on first and all that.

You're not making a fuss, you're 30 weeks pregnant and feeling very ill, that's precisely what you are supposed to call a midwife for.

Without wanting to make you anxious, at this point, fainting and visual disturbance etc could be signs of pre-eclampsia, if you haven't already, you must ring the number in your notes and speak to them urgently
