    Hey hun, I would pop to the Dr's/MW just to get your BP checked.

    Hope everything is ok. x

    Sounds like pre-eclampsia. I would go in and get checked.

    Yeah, changes in vision (due to bp) can be a sign of pre-e so I would go get checked. Hope everything goes well. :)

    I had the same thing... all the symptoms of pre-e, but my BP was only elevated slightly, and it went back down, but my OB said that ANYTIME the vision changes happen or I have sudden swelling when I'm well hydrated, I need to get my BP checked.

    Please give them a call and get your BP and urine checked. Play it safe. Hope all is well though. x
