I saw neurology yesterday.. he said that the headaches suond identical to the headaches I had with my sons pregnancy 3 years ago and my exam looks the same. He didnt feel there was a need for another MRI since they did one then but said unfortnately theres nothing he can offer me that isnt class C unless I try magnesium 500mg. I tried it yesterday b/c I had the worse headache of my life (I would compare it to the headache I had once in L&D when pre-e hit with with my son) the entire day and it may have weakened it a smidge but it hit full force again a few hours before bed time. I also went in for and NST yesterday b/c of lessened movement and higher BP's this weekend (144/85, 150/78) baby did great on the monitor (even though Ive been having to drink a little caffiene to get her to move). I mentioned the headaches worsening to the dr who called me Friday and he couldnt offer me any reasoning or help either. He just said that they will go away after delivery and left it at that. I am to the point that there is NO WAY I am going to be able to handle headaches daily like that for 6 more weeks. I dont know what else to do. I completely understand that delivery isnt the best option on the table at 33 weeks and I definitely dont want her to have to go to nicu, but im really afraid. Im fraid I'll have a siezure while im home alone with my 3 year old son.. who would be absolutely terrified and wouldnt have a clue what to do to get me help. I have a strong feeling something is going to happen sooner or later and its consuming my every thought :/. Gah I hate this! I LOVE pregnancy.. I was o hoping to have at least one normal one I could enjoy up until 39-40 weeks but it doesnt look like thats going to happen. At th ame time, Its so frustrating that no one seems concerned about my symptoms. I've been waiting on my MFM referral since Friday morning.. still havent heard a word and I've even called back and left a message.
