I just wanted to run some stuff by you guys, since youve been though it. Im having severe anxiety, headAches,lower backpain, light sensitivity, blurry/splochy vision and dizziness for the last 2/3 Weeks. Im 35 Weeks now with my third, I've never had any of this befOre and starting a couple dats ago im severly nauseated and vomiting. I feel there is something wrong. And I did get my Dr to work up some labs ill get the results Tuesday. But she says its all end of pregnancy stuff and due to the heat. But I dont go outside and my husband keeps our house at 70(which is cold here in AZ) my blood pressure is normally 110-120/60-70 havent had any spikes or weight gain. And only mild swelling in my face and hands. I do on occasion get pretty bad edema in my legs. Thanks for the help in advanced. Like I said im concered but know that it could just be nothing. Oh so the last week or so my breathing is worse even though the babys already dropped feels like im getting sick or theres somethung in my lungs.

Those are concerning symptoms, for sure, especially if you feel there is something wrong. Maternal instinct is not something to dismiss :) Will you be going in tomorrow? If not, I would have a list of questions for the nurse or doctor when they call to tell you the results (in case they say 'all is well' and you still need answers). Some women do go back to being sick in the 3rd trimester - like the morning sickness from the 1st trimester. But the symptoms of PE are similar. I recommend talking with your care provider again and making sure all those symptoms are noted and that you would feel better if you were checked again. When is your next scheduled appt?

How was your appointment today? Anxiety and nausea both worry me.

Well my second set of labs looked perfect she said no protein. My anemia levels are pretty bad but not fluctuating. but I have to take 2 iron pills a day even not pregnant so shes not to concerned. Shes wants weekly 24 hour tests and she prescribed me antibiotic s. she isnt sure why I feel the way I do. But very confident its not anything to do with pre e. I wish I was that confident
