I did mention the fact that the fioricet didnt touch the headaches and they said they could send me to neuro but that neuro probably couldnt do much for me.. they did this with the headaches with my son as well and I did go, and they couldnt do anything then, so I declined going this time. The headaches are exactly the same as they were with him. When I lay down at night, the pressure of the pillow hurts. It hurts behind my eyes often too and it seems to bother me more when im sitting than when im actually up moving around. They dont seem concerned about much of anything b/c my bp isnt that high.. they just keep telling me to keep an eye on my bp and if I have URQ pain under my rib, to come in.
It worries me b/c I never had what classified as "high" bp with my daughter, so the practice I was at with her never did a 24 hr urine on me. She ended up being in severe distress at 35 weeks and had to be delivered with 4th percentile IUGR and I was told after I demanded care, and after her delivery (they actually broke her leg getting her out so fast), that she would have been stillborn within a week or two. They are giving me growth scans this pregnancy but only every 4 weeks (28 weeks, 32 weeks and 36). I dont have a clue what actually caused her IUGR. I did have a horrible persistent cough with chest pressure and tachycardia (which has stayed with me.. I had a cardiac ablation in december that didnt work) but my pressures only got as high as 130/80 a few times and I actually lost 7 lbs the last week I was pregnant.
