Are you swollen? Could be preeclampsia. Please call your doctor asap!

I am swollen but doctor said I should be fine as long as I font get dizzy or headache. If I get those symptoms to call them immediately.

How far along are you? I am 38w so swollen is normal in my case.

I had the same problem with my past few headaches... My doc seemed concerned when my blood pressure was high today. I am being checked for preeclampsia tomorrow. Preeclampsia is something you don't want to play around with!!! Call your doc like ASAP.

Tinks, call your doc and keep us posted. Preeclampsia is very serious, it's the one thing all moms to be want to avoid.

Im new on here 36+5 and i had this one night too. Really sick all of a sudden and little white pin prick dots all in my vision like snow and a headache. Went to hospital and got checked luckily not preeclampsia. Could be a migraine these are often accompanied with visual disturbances and sickness. But Defo check with midwife incase it is BP.
Hope all is okay x

Pre eclempsia doesn't come from eating salt it's an adverse reaction to the placenta

I have the spots and so forth, my doctor said to stop what I'm doing and get off my feet that Is a way of our body telling us "SIT NOW OR I WILL PUT U DOWN " his words. Call them and be carefully. I'm 29 weeks

It doesn't have to be pre-e...it could be low blood sugar, low iron, dehydration.There are numerous reasons. I've been dizzy for the past week and my bp has been super low...don't get spooked...best thing is to check with your dr.

Happy Holidays!!! ;)

I've had the same thing blurred vision, seeing spots, dizzy and swollen hands and feet. Thank goodness it's not pre-eclampsia. I'm waiting on results to see if it's low iron. Like pp said it is also your body's way of telling you to take it easy and sig down and rest for a bit.

Make sure you get seen to and take it easy :-)

that happened to me monday driving to babies r us! I was half way thru a red light before realizing it cuz I couldn't see through all the spots in my vision. Pulled over and called a family member to get me. Went to the doctor the next day. My BP was normal. They took blood to test my kidneys, uric acid and some other things. I find out today. The day before I got a headache from hell by the way. I'm 33 weeks 3 days.
