I'm pregnant with my 3rd child. With my first pregnancy I experienced the HELLP Syndrome. With my second, I had PIH.
Right now I'm 33 weeks pregnant. I have been on bedrest since 21 weeks for my high blood pressure. My 24 hour urine sample was at 290 2 months ago. I haven't had protein in my urine samples at the office so far.
I'm experiencing headaches and also seeing black floating spots sometimes. I went into L&D last night. They did blood work and after being there for a hour my blood pressure was at 115/60. My labs were fine and the doctor never came in to see me. He told the nurse to tell me he wished he had my BP.
I'm still having headaches this morning. What could be causing this and should I demand better treatment for my doctor's office? I have also felt flu like symptons since 20 weeks. I ache all over my body and I have gained 65 pounds so far.
Thank you so much! Any advice would be great!
