Symptoms of Pre-E ??


So Iím not entirely sure what Iím looking for or if Iím being neurotic but Iíve been having really bad headaches the last few weeks.. once I went completely blind for a couple of minutes, Friday I couldnít see out of my peripheral vision because of the floaters, also for a couple of minutes but the headache stays even without visual disturbances.. feels like a dull ache across my eyebrows.. sometimes my forehead feels numb too.

I have no protein in urine and no swelling but I did notice my bp is Ďhighí for me but within normal range.

I was 100/60 for my 26 & 28 wk appts. My last appt @ 34+5 was 122/85. For somebody who normally has borderline low bp, surely thatís high for me?

Severe heartburn too, that bad it wakes me and baby is small too

Any advice ?

Hmmmmm well I'm no doctor but your BP seems totally normal, and without high BP or protein then the vision thing sounds like something separate. Especially with no swelling!!

For example I had borderline Pre-E with my son and my BP was 190/95 when I wasn't laying down on my side! And they didn't even call it pre e because I didn't have protein until right before I got induced.

The swelling is/was a MAJOR sign, along with BP and protein. I think if you are ONLY having vision changes that would be something else.

When is your next midwife appt? Hopefully she can help you feel like fearful and reassure you.

They sound like migraines but probably best to phone your midwife just to be on the safe side. Is there any way you could take your BP at home while you're symptomatic?

To be honest I wouldn't think twice about contacting a midwife if you have the slightest inclination that you could be pre eclamptic. It'll put your mind at ease if they tell you it's nothing to worry about, and if it is something to worry about you're in the right hands. My BP was pretty high for a while (140/90+) so I was getting constantly checked for pre e and they always told me the headache would be bad and at the front, and paracetamol wouldn't do anything to get rid of it. Epigastric pain is also a big one they were always asking about.

I had a really long reply typed out and my
Phone wiped it fgs.

Bp was 142/95 today. Bloods sent off.

No protein in urine but then my urine didnít show a kidney infection, even after being admitted to hosp.. Iím a strange one.

Are there any other symptoms I should be looking for at all ?

Aww man I'm sorry. Did they put you on bedrest?

For me, I felt kinda woozy which is what led me to check my own BP and be diagnosed. Just light headed. I had vision changes but no headache. I wasn't diagnosed with pre-e, though....they induced me as soon as there was protein.

They say upper right quadrant pain, swelling......hopefully you just have hypertension and not pre-e.

I had a friend who had to have an emergency section at 35 weeks because she had a pre eclampic fit and she never has protein in her urine at all!

You're being looked after though, so I'm sure whatever happens a you're in the best hands.

Aww I'm sorry! So what are the next steps? Looks like you are being induced in 5 days? How are along will you be? Bed rest until then? Not much else you can do...take it easy and keep us posted!!! Are they calling it Pre-e?!?!?!
