Ok ladies,
I had a funny episode last night at work. I was sitting at my desk and couldn't read the paper that was in front of me. I had a big blind spot in my vision and was really dizzy. I had to lean my chair all the way back and stay with my feet up for about an hour. Thought about calling the dr but figured he would just say to go to the hospital as it was the middle of the night. was wondering if anyone else experienced this or if it was a normal pregnany thing. I have had pree twice so I am not sure what a normal pregnancy is like. oh I shoudl mention that I am currently on labetelol 300mg twice daily and I had someone at work check my pressure and it was only 135/80, so it wasn't too bad.
thanks in advance ladies.

No idea, but it sounds freaky! Glad you were able to relax... anything else happen since or been more wonky?

I'm with you on having no idea what a normal pregnancy should look like!

Well my pressure went up to 150/90-95 all day and stayed there. I have had one raging headache since then too. I have no idea what is going on at this point. Hope my pressures get a little better or I may give dr a call before the weekend starts. They may have to up my medications to keep my pressures down.

With both these symptoms ( high pressures and headache - does Tylenol touch it?), I would not wait any longer and get in touch with your doctor. They might want to see you and also check your labs.

I would call the doc today also and update them. And also ask about testing, even if just a 24 hour urine.

That stinks that your pressures took a leap. I'd put those feet up and give a call- make those drs earn their big bucks. :)

Just checking on you! Any visual disturbances (ANY - they can be a number of different things) and headaches that bad, especially the two together, should be reported to the doctor.

I did talk with my dr about the episode of funny vision and increased bp. He didn't seem concerned as it has been better since. In good news he did set the date for my c section. July 19th. I can't wait as I am big and miserable currrently and my gerd is still going full force.

Glad things went back to normal. We had a week where symptoms seemed to increase and then just poof went back to normal again.

July 19th- awesome! I think at our next appt with the MFM we'll solidify if we'll be another 37 week induction.. that would put us around July 10th... it will be my first kiddo born in the same month as their due date! I'm so excited!
