Dull or severe, throbbing headaches, often described as migraine-like that just won't go away are cause for concern.
What you can do...
If you have tried taking over-the-counter medication without relief, if the headache is very painful or you have light sensitivity, call your provider immediately and ask to see him/her that day.
Headaches are a red flag to get checked out because they can be warning signs of eclampsia - seizures. Do you have any visual changes? Those can also be warning signs if so. You might just have a migrane, but even in that case, they could hopefully give you something for the pain! Since you're diagnosed with pre-eclampsia your headache that isn't going away with tylenol is making not-a-doc me very, very nervous. I'm a people-pleaser too
but in your shoes I'd rather them be mad at me than risk seizures.
PS I don't think they'll be mad. I think that sometimes what we see as annoyance and anger is that they feel helpless. They don't want us to be sick! Most health care providers are in the business because they want to help people! I wonder if it's also that the treatment options - premature delivery - can be pretty grim, and in practical terms, a sick mom who can die is very stressful on them. But that's one of the reasons we really push for patients to advocate for themselves and work *with* your health care team as much as possible. Even if that sometimes means reminding them of the diagnostic criteria and push for bloodwork, NSTs, etc, to be done.
How is baby moving, by the way? Decreased movement is something else to watch out for...
You are the best judge of how bad you feel, but in your shoes I wouldn't wait until morning. At least call L&D or the doc on call and see what they say, if they think you should come in.
