Pregnancy Drama! ew

First a vent: I have my appointment with the cardiovascular doc on Friday at 10. ...kinda scary that i need to been seen by cardio. My bp is creeping back up even with the higher dose of the new meds. My symptoms on these meds are horrible, I feel like I could collapse to the floor and sleep for months, occasional blurred vision, daily constant migraines that don't respond to meds (i have an undiagnoised mirgrain issue that causes blackouts and and seizure like actions. I was in the middle of testing when I became pg. The headaches are worse now) and dizzyness that makes me physically ill.

Second a question: I also have insane pain in my hips, pelvis and lower back. I figured it was the normal shifting the body goes threw during pregnancy, but the last two-three days the pain is so awful I can barely stand or walk. Or sit without wanting to scream in pain...any idea what it could be?

Lastly a statement: Ugh pregnancy shouldn't be so gosh darn worrisome! Grr

It sounds like SPD. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphysis_pubis_dysfunction
I hope you can get some relief soon, and from your migraines as well!

That was my original thinking but this pain is literally brought me to tears.
I think I may wait until Friday and see if it gets worse, if not i'll just wait until my next appointment.

Wow! I'd never heard of this. Thank you for the link, I think I will read up on this some more.

The description makes it sound permanent, but it's typically not. I think that there's also a girdle you can wear that might help, if this is indeed what's going on. Good luck with the doctor!

Im sorry about your BP not cooperating- hopefully that'll get figured out ASAP!
I have intense pain some days- usually a day after a particularly strenuous day- and it hurts so bad just to walk. I hope it ends up being nothing for you!
