Why dont I whine a little more!?!

Hey ladies
Allow me to whine about something else now. Lol

I feel like such crap these past few days. Nausea is back most of the time, I have a headache on and off all the time (not severe, just annoying) and Im just exhausted. Now with these symptoms Im afraid i have hellp syndrome!!!

I was just at the OB yesterday and she saw my pressure was up a bit, no protein in urine, knows about the headaches and the tiredness. The only thing I didnt mention was the nausea. I have no pain in my abdomen.

I took my bp today and it's already down a bit from one dose of meds.

Tell me not to worry please!!!!! I just start getting to anxious as I get close to the end I think.

It isn't unheard of to get nausea again near the end. Hate to hear that you have this creeping back in though! Sad
Maybe download the free hypnobabies tracks and see if they help? One is called "Relax me!"

:bighug: so sorry you are feeling crappy. You would have protein with HELLP wouldn't you?

It all sounds normal to me. Several ladies on my April board got nausea back in the the third tri. And I had all the other symptoms you described. My emotions also get pretty severe when pg. I basically turn into a psycho, which I think may be part of DH's reason for not wanting any more kids.

The end of pregnancy is hard. All of those things are common end of the road symptoms like the others said if your pressure and protine are normal. I like the idea of listening to the relax me stuff. I know the fear release stuff and a few other tracks from hypnobabies totally helped me relieve stress during pregnancy.

Well went to triage this morning because I had a headache allll night that wouldnt respond to tylenol. Thankfully bp and bloodwork ok. THey guess the headache and nausea is likely a side effect of the medication. Lovely! :huh:

So then I ask when should I be concerned.......apparently not by my headaches anymore. LOL!

I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. I struggled with hormonal migraines throughout my pregnancy (ended up HAVING to drink at least a little coffee and take a half dose of Excedrin Migraine on doctor's orders to manage it) so I definitely understand how annoying and debilitating headaches and nausea can be Sad I hope you are at least able to relax and not be stressed out by it, even if it's not something you can get rid of.

BOO to the headaches. I get awful ones if I don't have some sort of caffeine everyday now. Very random since I had very little caffeine ever the first 18 weeks or so.

(((Hugs))) Sorry you're not feeling well this close to being done! I suffer from pregnancy headaches, too (well, also when I'm not pregnant) and they are miserable.
