Should I check in with the midwife?


Hey ladies I'm 26w and not due to see my MW until 28 weeks .. I haven't had an appointment since 16 weeks .. I've occasionally seen little shooting stars and I keep seeing little flashes here and there .. I also get headaches when I'm pregnant I did with my last one ... I feel like I should get my BP checked instead of waiting another 2 weeks!

I feel like you're more left alone 2nd time round with a lot less check ups etc!

I say absolutely yes. Get it checked at the gp if not midwife, or even some pharmacies do it. You don't want to mess around with high bp! Your midwife will see you I'm sure if you ring them.

I am glad you've been checked out! I hope you are drinking some extra water. I would also drink 100% cranberry juice as well, like 4 cups per day, for the week. It is worth trying, even if it doesn't help. It tends to help me, though.
