Swollen face hands and feet along with vomiting...
So as the title says I noticed swelling of my face hands and feet yesterday afternoon and I know some swelling is normal but it just seemed to come on all of a sudden and I was feeling fine and all a sudden I started throwing up and continued to all through the night and throughout the day. I decided to take it easy and just lay down and just when I thought it was getting better it hit again and I had severe pain in the top part of my stomach ( between boobs and bump). I just don't know what's going on and I was hoping someone could maybe give me some insight as I don't want to dare try to google anything lol
i've been experiencing this off and on and i called my doctor twice and both times they told me it was normal and the baby is pushing on my organs or stomach, and to watch what i eat because of salt, and retaining water and blood pressure.. but i dont believe them. they seem unreliable... so let me know if you get answers
Preeclampsia can develop gradually but often starts abruptly, after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Preeclampsia may range from mild to severe. If your blood pressure was normal before your pregnancy, signs and symptoms of preeclampsia may include:
High blood pressure (hypertension) — 140/90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or greater — documented on two occasions, at least six hours but no more than seven days apart
Excess protein in your urine (proteinuria)
Changes in vision, including temporary loss of vision, blurred vision or light sensitivity
Upper abdominal pain, usually under your ribs on the right side
Nausea or vomiting
Decreased urine output
Sudden weight gain, typically more than 2 pounds (0.9 kilogram) a week
Swelling (edema), particularly in your face and hands, often accompanies preeclampsia. Swelling isn't considered a reliable sign of preeclampsia, however, because it also occurs in many normal pregnancies.
When to see a doctor
Contact your doctor immediately or go to an emergency room if you have severe headaches, blurred vision or severe pain in your abdomen.
Sorry ladies, been very busy this week, everyone has taken me out everyday as yesterday was my 21st bday (woo hoo) i didn't get checked out before but last night was having serious contractions and pain all day, went to the dr this evening as I was hurting so bad and was still swollen and got checked, he said everything was fine looks like I'm just one that will have plenty of false labor and no real reason for the swelling but blood pressure is fine and no protien in urine so I guess that's good, I'm just taking it easy and he said that as long as I make it to 36 weeks I'll be good and he will let me go ahead and have my LO, so no I guess it's just a waiting game. Thank you all for being concerned
