Bookworm - I started spending a lot more time in major pain, and I started throwing up. I am NOT a puker. It was obvious to everyone (except me) that something was seriously wrong at that point. I also turned yellow and really felt flu-ish and terrible. As a point of reference, I had real influenza this winter. Everyone else in my house said it was the worst/sickest/nastiest bug ever. It was not nearly as bad as being pregnant with HELLP.
I suggest going in to L&D if anything changes, gets worse, or you just can't take it any more. Always call if you wonder about anything. No doctor ever died answering the phone. Leave the worrying to them and go in if you think things are starting to head downhill. I hope that your body can hold out for a while.
