Re: Anyone get the headache before BP went up?

Thanks, I kinda had a feeling that's what the answer might be, though I hoped otherwise! I guess the hard part is figuring out when you need to go in. For now (unless things get worse) I think I'll stick with the "if it doesn't go away with Tylenol" guideline. I don't have a headache today, so I'm h...

Anyone get the headache before BP went up?

I've had a headache since yesterday afternoon....I took Tylenol last night, and it lessened, but I'm not sure if it completely went away or not...I eventually fell asleep. When I woke up it was gone, but after being up for a bit it came back. I thought I was just tired, so I had a long nap, and when...

Re: Would you call?

Yeah I know what you mean, I hate calling as well. Except I always end up having scary symptoms on the weekend when I have no choice but to go to L&D...and they run their blood tests etc. and send me home saying everything is fine! And then I feel dumb :) but I guess I'd rather go in 50 times and ha...

Re: Restless leg syndrome...more like restless body...

I am low on iron, and am currently taking a supplement. The restless legs doesn't worry me, because I had bad restless legs with my other pregnancy, its the restless arms that worries me. I've never heard of restless arm syndrome! The funny thing is, I had restless legs last time, but wasn't low on ...

Re: Weird symptoms...

Yeah, the only problem is I've had all those symptoms (besides decreased fetal movement), but mildly, they just keep coming and going :( and I don't want to wait until things get really severe...its such a fine line I think....

Re: Weird symptoms...

Thank you :) I've been feeling so on edge this week...partially after discovering my blood pressure doesn't have to rise for things to get serious, which makes things very difficult! So it's hard to tell if I'm actually feeling worse, or if I'm just worried! It's nice to know there are others out th...

Re: What happens biologically during Pre-E

I'm not sure if this is active anymore, but I thought I'd add my thoughts :) I'm just wondering if there's any relation between having a tilted/retroverted (not sure of the proper term!) uterus and getting preeclampsia. I was thinking that if what causes it is a not properly attached placenta (among...

Re: Weird symptoms...

If my doctors office doesn't call tomorrow, I will be calling to ask what my bloodwork came back as, they should have it back by tomorrow, I got it taken this morning. I've felt really terrible today, but I think that may have something to do with being really nervous that something is going to go w...

Re: Restless leg syndrome...more like restless body...

I've heard a couple good tips, none that I've had a chance to try though :) One is to put a bar of soap in your bed at night...sounds weird to me, but I'm willing to give it a try! I was told to google it, so that's what I'm going to do in a minute. Another is to get your husband to give you a nice ...

Re: Weird symptoms...

Yeah it's really frustrating when your blood pressure doesn't go high...I mean, I know my blood pressure is sitting rather high for me (top number varies HUGELY, anywhere from 107-138! Bottom number is now sitting in the mid 70's), but not scary high for a normal person...and I was telling myself th...
